Skills Ignite for Financial Services programme

The Skills Ignite programme will enable financial services professionals to gain new skills to meet the future and ever-changing needs of the sector. In designing the suite of courses on offer, IOB has worked closely with the financial services sector to ensure that participants gain qualifications in critical areas of growth and opportunity including compliance, risk, customer advice and service, funds, data and digital and technology.

The programme is a joint initiative between Financial Services Ireland, IFS Skillnet, IOB (the Institute of Banking) and the five pillar retail banks – AIB, Bank of Ireland, Permanent TSB, KBC and Ulster Bank – in collaboration with Skillnet Ireland.
