Whistleblowing rights and obligations
Since the financial crisis, whistleblowing has become front-page news on topics such as data security and treating customers fairly. It is therefore vital that firms and their staff are aware of their rights and obligations. In this course you will learn about what whistleblowing is and its important role in helping to improve the financial sector; how to adhere to the relevant whistleblowing regulations, and what the consequences of non-compliance are for individuals and firms.

Diversity in the Workplace
The FCA defines vulnerable customers as “someone who, due to their personal circumstances, is especially susceptible to detriment, particularly when a firm is not acting with appropriate levels of care.” This course has been designed to help explain what additional support vulnerable customers may need, and how firms can meet those needs through case studies and real-life examples.
Staff should work in a non-threatening and safe work environment and treated with dignity and respect, which is part of an employer’s legal requirement. Understanding how micro-behaviours (or micro-aggressions) intersect with Equality law and unconscious bias will help your organisation to reach this goal. This course covers:
Let’s talk about race in the workplace
Our ‘Let’s Talk About Race in the Workplace’ course has been designed to persuade learners that racism is not just about explicit racist language, abuse or discrimination, it can take the form of inequality and inadvertent bias ingrained in the way organisations and society is run. The course will further persuade learners that they need to consciously and proactively address racial bias in their organisation.
Return to Work E-Learning
Learning to live and work safely, in a post-pandemic world is a pressing concern for most of us today. Using the latest government advice, we’ve created an additional Return to Work e-learning module for our Future Ways of Working Toolkit, to give you the key advice, precautions and staffing strategies you need to create a safe working environment post-lockdown.
Treating customers fairly
The FCA states that “all firms must be able to show consistently that fair treatment of customers is at the heart of their business model”. This sentiment is reflected in the FCA’s six TCF outcomes and the Rules and Principles that support them. Above all, TCF is about creating the right culture within a firm: “customers expect financial services and products that meet their needs from firms they trust” . This course has been designed to help people understand what is meant by ‘Treating Customers Fairly’ through case studies and real-life examples. Learners will be assessed on their knowledge and understanding through a test at the end of the course.
