PwC's Academy

PwC's Academy. Our trainings are practical and business-oriented. Our trainers are experts in their field, be it technical or soft skills. Our participants are actively engaged in the learning process and go back to their workplace ready to apply new skills. Training makes the difference.

Training makes the difference

Who we are

We are a group of dedicated training specialists, with the mission to create high-impact learning events that provide value directly in the learner's workplace. Our core business consists of providing learning solutions in two distinct formats. The first are the public training events announced in our calendar of open courses. These events are delivered from September to July in our own purpose-built learning facilities. The second product line are the dedicated sessions we create and deliver for specific clients. These solutions are custom-built to fulfil our clients’ development needs and respect their confidentiality.

Our approach

To ensure the impact of our learning events, we collaborate with our subject matter experts to combine their technical expertise with our pedagogical know-how. The unique blend of up-to-date content and effective methodology is what makes sessions delivered by PwC’s Academy visibly different. We believe that, when it comes to knowledge transfer and developing new skills, the "how" is as important as the "what".

We apply project management techniques to each training, to ensure consistent follow-up from clarifying objectives to implementing and sustaining benefit.
