Public sessions

Our public vulnerability courses cover a range of subjects to help staff develop the skills to identify, communicate and support customers in vulnerable circumstances.

Front line creditor staff continue to be presented with difficult situations in supporting customers across the whole range of vulnerable circumstances that people experience. The cumulative effect of dealing with these challenges – particularly during the Covid-19 outbreak – can impact staff wellbeing both emotionally and professionally.

Building resilience helps us to stay safe, well and effective in our roles. To help the credit industry as it seeks to improve resilience in every workplace, we are holding a public session of our new remote learning course, building personal resilience to help you to support your staff.

Building personal resilience

25 May 2022

9:30 AM - 1:00 PM

Delivered online via Zoom


"The better we become at creating environments where our customers feel more comfortable telling us what is going on in their lives, the more we are exposed to information and situations that can be difficult to hear. Covid-19 has meant that many of us may be going through similar challenges as our customers. We wanted to create a course that helps colleagues to keep well while helping others."

- Caroline Wells, Customer Experience Expert, Money Advice Trust
