TIFS - Training Initiative for Financial Supervision
In 2009, the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF) established the Training Initiative for Financial Supervision (TIFS). TIFS is a training centre for supervisors of all sectors of the financial market (banking, capital market, pension and insurance) from European countries.
TIFS is aimed at creating a discussion forum which gives supervisors the opportunity to share practical experience and develop their know-how through programmes for specialised staff of supervisory authorities, including inspectors, staff specialised in micro/macroanalysis, emergency experts, legal experts and accountants. TIFS promotes cooperation, on-going exchange of experience, and effective communication between the middle management staff of financial supervisory authorities in Central and Eastern Europe and in the EU. TIFS identifies training needs and prepares training programmes accordingly. Although all programmes usually draw on the input of Polish speakers and case studies, TIFS actively involves specialists from participating countries, and invites foreign experts.
TIFS promotes the stability of financial sectors through effective implementation of the best supervisory practices and standards, drawing on the experience gained by Poland and other countries.
- To organise programmes focused on the current supervision-related topics which correspond to the fundamental needs and interest of financial supervisors from European countries.
- To promote cooperation, exchange of experience, and effective communication between staff of financial supervisory authorities in European countries.
- To promote the experiences of Poland and of other countries from Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the best practices and solutions in the area of financial supervision.
TThe ‘TIFS’ training initiative offers the knowledge of practical experience and techniques relating to financial supervision. The training programmes are designed to encourage active participation, to share examples of practical implementation of the best supervisory practices, and to focus on the common needs and interests of the CEE and the EU. The programmes are aimed at inspiring exchange of views, experiences and best practices. The programmes are structured so as to go beyond the theory and generally known practices and thus to provide the participants with examples based on case studies of effective implementation of supervisory regulations, methods and techniques.
The proposed interactive programmes are addressed to the middle-level staff from all sectors of the financial market (banking, capital market, pension and insurance) who have professional experience and are truly interested and engaged in the topic of a particular workshop, including as part of their daily tasks. All training materials and programmes are prepared and conducted in English.
