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, as part of the HM Treasury, Financial Management Review. 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

The GFA learning and development offer is built around the skills that government finance professionals should have to follow the three finance career pathways of Strategic Finance, Finance Control & Operations and Business Partnering & Change and has structured and focused learning for each finance functional skill.

We offer a wide range learning and development opportunities and materials. These include digital products, such a career pathways tool and a range of interactive on line learning, alongside face to face training events, technical updates, webinars and networking opportunities. These are delivered through the GFA curriculum which is a collection of high quality learning structured activities, from core ‘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.

Where to find us

Civil Servants can access the GFA website through OneFinance.
