Our seminars, workshops and special events reflect the latest thinking and research on central bank policy and operations. Our speakers are experts in their field, drawn from the Bank of England, London financial markets, academia and the event participants themselves.
CCBS events are aimed at practitioners from central banks and regulatory authorities who can bring their expertise and experience to the table. Seminars are usually a mix of lectures, discussions and case studies to encourage sharing of experience and different approaches used around the world.
London events are held at the Bank of England.

Apply to attend a CCBS event
Applications to attend a CCBS event open as soon as we publish our prospectus. They close 14 weeks before an event takes place. You must obtain prior approval from your training department.
Latest Event and Travel Guidance from CCBS
As you will be aware, the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) has made many institutions around the world consider whether they should continue to hold events that require international travel. With this in mind, the Bank is cancelling or considering alternative methods of delivery for its CCBS events scheduled to 31 May 2020.
You can continue to apply for CCBS events starting after 31 May 2020 and we plan to run them as scheduled. We will keep that decision under review as the situation evolves and will issue further communications as needed. We would advise you not to make any travel arrangements until you have been officially accepted and we have confirmed that the event will take place in London. Please be aware that if you are accepted on an event we may be required to cancel it at short notice.
The Bank apologises for any and all inconvenience involved in this decision.
CCBS activities in 2020
To apply for an event, you need to register using our online form. You must use your official organisation email address to register. We will confirm your registration within 24 hours, although this will take longer during weekends or UK public holidays. You will then receive a password by email.
Apply to attend an event
Most events are oversubscribed and places are limited, so we cannot consider late or multiple applications from each organisation. We consider all applications after the closing date and not on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
We will let you know if your application has been successful at least two to three months before an event takes place. We advise you not to book travel until you receive an email from us confirming your place. You should also check if you need a visa to visit the UK.
You will be required to complete an administration form if you have been accepted as a participant for an event. You should complete this a minimum of three weeks before the event starts.
CCBS events are free. We cover the cost of tuition, along with some lunches and social activities. Your organisation is responsible for your travel expenses, accommodation and daily living expenses.
