Our approach Successful organizational change and personal development requires stringent, accurate and up to date knowledge, competences and attitudes. In a fast-changing business environment, it is essential that learning and development activities are aligned with the strategic needs of the business. We team with clients to develop learning solutions which impact positively on business outcomes and steer people forward.
Training performance stems from the rigorous selection of trainer given the theme, business context, audience and format of the learning journey. Consequently, we carefully and consistently apply the following selection criteria:
Knowledge of the training theme supported by a proven track record;
Experience in training delivery as well as in group animation;
Successful exposure to the targeted audience in a training context;
Quality of the course support material and of the client experience.
To select the most suitable trainer, we leverage the three different talent pools we have developed over the years:
The extensive PricewaterhouseCoopers network of professionals constitute our primary trainers pool. Trainers are seasoned professionals in the fields of audit and controlling, tax, finance and advisory services and hold furthermore the essential pedagogical background. We leverage both local and international PwC networks to tailor the course to your very needs and deliver transnational training journeys.
PwC’s Academy has also developed long lasting partnerships with external subject matter experts to complement the internal trainers’ pool on personal development related courses. These external partners are rigorously chosen and strictly comply with our quality requirements. Our partnerships with external providers are transparent and openly discussed with the client upfront.
PwC’s Academy works regularly with universities and business schools to leverage academic research and pedagogical excellence for the benefit of clients.
