CHARTERED BANKER BY EXPERIENCE (CBBE)
a. Assessment Format
There are 3 steps to becoming a Chartered Banker via the CBBE programme:
Step 1: Critical Self-Evaluation
In this step, candidates reflect on their experience, expertise and professional practice.
There will be 3 reflective statements (800–1,200 words each) required, covering:
- one key area of banking
- the development and future of banking, and
Step 2: Professional Ethics Assignment
An assignment (3,000 words), where candidates are required to:
- describe the key principles of ethical and professional behaviour in a banking environment, and
- reflect on situations at work where they faced ethical dilemmas, consider how they dealt with those situations and how it has impacted their professional practice today.
Step 3: Presentation and Professional Discussion
This step comprises the following:
- A 30-minute presentation based on the candidate’s Professional Ethics assignment
- A 2-hour professional discussion with the assessor on the candidate’s career and experience — as set out in the CV provided — and in the self-evaluation statements.
