The CIPFA Education and Training Centre emphasises the development and maintaining of relationships with employers. The management team work to ensure that sponsors of students enrolling for tuition from CETC are highly satisfied with the quality of service provided.

We regularly consult with organisations to ensure we're continuing to provide the quality service and tuition expected, keeping employers up to date with their employees' progress. This includes:

  • formal feedback reports after each assessment
  • access to senior CIPFA education and training staff at meetings where employers are consulted and informed about our future plans and discuss the previous semester's courses, including exam results
  • course coverage that meets the organisation's training needs
  • a high-quality service – their staff will be receiving the best training available
  • the opportunity for bespoke tuition programmes to meet the particular needs of an organisation or group

We hold quarterly meetings for employers with students who are studying with CIPFA. The meetings are an opportunity to hear from the CIPFA team on key developments, to raise any questions you may have and to hear from other employers.
