Who we are

PwC's Academy leverages PwC's expertise to provide organisations across sectors and geographies with premium learning experiences.

Our goal is to help develop the knowledge, skills, competences and expertise of people; to help organisations grow and retain their talents. We implement vocational training best practices that privilege quality, efficiency and innovation, and remain continuously attentive to the needs of our clients. Our mission is carried out by our team of experts, who share their knowledge and know-how gained through years of working with leading organisations around the world. 

PwC's Academy is a vocational training organisation approved by the Luxembourgish Ministry of Education, Children and Youth. The Luxembourg state provides training subsidies under certain conditions, according to the Law of 22 June 1999 modified by the Law of August 2017 (more information on www.infpc.lu). 

Our approach

Approach

Successful organisational change and personal development require accurate and up-to-date knowledge, competences and also the trainer’s mindset. In a fast-changing business environment, it is essential that learning and development activities are aligned with the strategic needs of the business. We team up with our clients to develop learning solutions, which impact positively on business outcomes and steer people forward.

Our trainers

Our trainings are effective largely thanks to the performance of our trainers. We follow a rigorous selection process and criteria when choosing our instructors to cater to specific business contexts, audience and learning formats. 

In our  selection criteria, we look for:

  • Knowledge of the training theme supported by a proven track record;

  • Experience in training delivery as well as in event facilitation;

  • Previous experience in teaching a similar audience;

  • Quality of course support material provided in advance by a potential trainer;

  • Audience feedback.

To select the most suitable trainer, we use the three different talent pools we have developed over the years:

Internal trainers

The extensive PricewaterhouseCoopers network of professionals constitute our primary resource. Our trainers are seasoned professionals in the fields of audit and controlling, tax, finance and advisory services and hold the necessary pedagogical background. We leverage both local and international PwC networks to tailor each course to the specific needs of our clients and deliver transnational training journeys.

External partners

PwC's Academy has also developed long lasting partnerships with external subject matter experts to complement the internal trainers' pool on personal development related courses. These external partners are rigorously chosen and strictly comply with our quality requirements. Our partnerships with external providers are transparent and openly discussed with the client upfront.
