Government Finance Academy

The Government Finance Academy provides a cohesive learning and development offer for finance professionals across the Civil Service.


The Government Finance Academy (GFA) was launched in February 2016. Our overall objective is to provide high quality learning and development offers to help improve financial skills, capability and talent across the Government Finance profession.

What we offer

We offer a wide range learning and development opportunities and materials, including interactive on line learning digital products alongside face to face training events, technical updates, webinars and networking opportunities. These are delivered through the GFA core finance curriculum underpinned by the Government Finance Function Learning and Development Strategy. The curriculum is a collection of high-quality learning structured activities, from basic ‘how to’ fundamentals to more advanced skill building.

The curriculum covers all the skills that civil servants in the finance community need to achieve their potential and provide excellent public finance services.
