Personal Development

Certified Online Learning

The foundation for the continued success of the Academy is our sincere desire to help, support and upskill people that we work with. This includes everyone from MLROs and Financial Crime Compliance Directors to members of first line onboarding relationship managers.

We know that personal development can be realised through hard work, a commitment to continuous learning and skills development. That is why GCAL is relevant.

We believe that our defining USP is our commitment to providing meaningful and memorable learning that engages, informs and inspires those that we work with.

Whether you are planning to take the next step up the ladder, or your wish to take more responsibility, we are here to help you by providing up to date guidance and information that will ensure that you have the commensurate knowledge and skills to realise your ambitions.

We offer a blend of learning to support all levels of risk and compliance professionals, at all stages of their professional and personal development and our work is independently accredited by the CPD Institute and can also be awarded in association with the University of Gloucestershire.
