A Virtual Classroom will be used as the online delivery tool. Each session will lead to the next session with an interval of 30 minutes at the end of session 1 and 60 minutes at the end of session 2.

All sessions are designed to optimise your learning experience with ample opportunity for you to engage with the trainer and other course participants throughout the virtual classroom. In this environment, the trainer will cover the course content and learning outcomes using different perspectives to reinforce understanding and practical application of knowledge. We have designed our virtual training courses to ensure you get the best learning experience possible. Throughout the day you will use a range of tools and techniques including group exercises and live chat, to ensure that you are able to engage and interact with your trainer and share knowledge and best practice with your peers.

Each session will follow a similar structure i.e. brief overview of course material plus sharing of any valuable business insights. Participants will also be invited to engage in discussions throughout. The trainer will provide practical guidance on how to respond to issues raised by tasks set in advance in the pre-reading course materials. These will be centred around aspects flagged by past participants as most beneficial (treasury mission, policy, competency, tackling topical risks such as liquidity). Any other aspects highlighted in advance by participants will also be covered during each session at the appropriate time. The trainer will facilitate discussion towards the end of the final session whereby participants can not only learn from each other but may also highlight any aspects they found particularly helpful and worthy of consideration in their workplace.
