Westpac was named the national Employer of the Year at the 2014 Australian Training Awards for its outstanding commitment to ensuring its employees have the skills and training they need forbright futures.
Through its Best Banker Professional Qualifications Program, Westpac provides its employees with training to allow them to undertake a range of specialist roles across the organisation.
The program was defined, designed and developed by Westpac for its bankers, and delivers qualifications ranging from Certificate III to Advanced Diploma. More than 2200 Westpac employees have completed formal qualifications through the program and, over time, Westpac will expand the program to all its bankers.
Further to the Best Banker program, Westpac has developed a virtual learning environment called eAcademy.
