An Introduction to Apprenticeships 

Before you get stuck into the practical in-depth guidance, available to everyone who registers above, we’ve also put together a handy introduction to Apprenticeships in the insurance and financial planning sectors.

Based on research we conducted with firms across our sector, a handful of reoccurring themes came out loud and clear. This booklet takes a high level look at what you need to consider when looking to address these issues in your firm.

Small businesses – there’s support for you too. 

We are working with our accredited providers to ensure that firms, whatever their size, across insurance and financial planning can access apprenticeship training. 

So, for the smaller firms in our sector, CII accredited training is available to small general insurance intermediaries through Babington and financial planning firms should look to use the Personal Finance Society’s ASPIRE programme. (England only)
