CIPP and activpayroll launch new training academy

The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) has partnered with activpayroll to launch a new training academy that will help train future generations of payroll professionals.

The launch of the academy was announced at activpayroll’s headquarters in Aberdeen. The launch was attended and supported by George Yule, Executive Vice Chairman of Aberdeen Football Club and Gordon Prentice, Finance Director at the Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce.

The academy will provide formal training and qualifications for activpayroll’s 25 members of staff.

“I am really enthusiastic to finally launch our training academy in collaboration with the CIPP. We’ve worked really hard over the last thirteen years to grow activpayroll to be a recognised global brand and I believe this is down to our team’s ongoing efforts. For this reason, we want to ensure the development of our staff by creating an in-house payroll academy,” said Alison Sellar, chief executive officer of activpayroll.

The news was also welcomed by Allan Isdale, CIPP’s national lead for Scotland added: “This partnership with activpayroll marks an exciting new chapter for the CIPP. We’re delighted to be involved in helping to play a crucial part in raising awareness about the payroll industry and helping to broaden the appeal of the industry to new people. We’re looking forward to the coming weeks and months.”
