Government supports Institute's Professionalism Campaign
The work of the Institute to enhance and sustain professionalism in banking has been recognized and commended in the Scottish Government’s Banking Strategy. The Scottish Government has pledged to work with the Chartered Banker Institute and the banks in Scotland to encourage maximum support for, and uptake of, the Foundation Standard and to promote the Chartered Banker designation for all appropriate staff. It will also consider with the Institute and the banks what the options might be for making membership of a professional body mandatory for bankers in order to bring banking closer into line with other professions.
