    Asian Banking School
    The 2-day, 14-hour course covers an overview of lexis and terminology related to the banking and finance industries. However, as we understand that skills are critical to business success, the programme is also focussed on equipping participants with the tools and confidence to become better communicators, both within their respective departments and externally.

    All of the skills work undertaken by students on the course is framed and contextualised for the banking industry. Work is covered on the writing of reports and emails, with a final course assessment on presenting information orally (based on the earlier report task). The report task will focus on understanding trends, indicators and cycles within the banking industry.

    During the course, our trainers will take the role of facilitator, empowering participants with the knowledge, ‘best-practice’ advice, and digital literacy to think critically and deliver results.

    The course has been designed to fit into 2 days with the following ‘bite-size’ modules:
    • Language: lexis, terminology and grammar
    • Email writing
    • Report writing
    • Presentation skills
