Payments learning platform launched – Education Technology

A new online education platform claims to be the first in the world to focus on the payments sector.

PayEd launched yesterday (30 August) in a bid to help people stake out a career in the burgeoning field.

“Our primary focus is to roll out a comprehensive global payments education offering to meet the knowledge gap in this very agile market,” said founder and CEO, John Ryan.

“The landscape has been evolving, through major shifts in technology, and regulations.  This has seen the evolution of new payment methods and businesses which support the solutions and service.

“Yet, payments is not recognised as a work profession, nor is widely available for study in secondary or tertiary education.”

Thus, the reason behind Ryan, who has worked in the payment sector since the 1990s, bringing the learning platform to market last year.

“We are extremely excited to have launched PayEd as the sector continues to grow rapidly and become more sophisticated,” he added.

Courses are designed to cater to a broad range of knowledge, with #101 in payments set up as a foundation course offering a general overview of the subject.

Other courses currently available include ones focusing on cybersecurity, regulations, design thinking, and the SWIFT payment system.

PayEd says it is also working with academia to offer a degree in payments.

Largely based in Australasia, PayEd claims to have been working in Central Africa as part of its inclusion programme, and is set to deliver training to secondary schools from next year.

An advisory board has been convened to help steer the company’s expansion, including sector specialists from Ecology Media, 34 South 45 North, Suite2Go, the Australian Payments Network, and Australian Payments Plus.

“Together they will support further development and commercialisation of PayEd’s suite of courses, while also offering a unique and diverse perspective on the world of payments,” said Ryan.
