The Chartered Insurance Institute has launched its Aspire Apprenticeship programmes.
Employers across the insurance sector expressed a need for quality-assured apprenticeship training programmes that are accessible, relevant and offer a solution to access available funding for businesses of all sizes.
With the insurance sector facing the challenge of attracting and retaining talent in an increasingly competitive environment, the CII said its Aspire Apprenticeship Programmes will provide purpose-built and standardised training for firms to develop and grow highly capable apprentices.
The Aspire Apprenticeship Programmes offer nationwide coverage, training by CII-selected providers and programmes that run throughout the year via a choice of e-learning and face-to-face training programmes.
The CII said the programmes will make it easy for firms with wage bills of less than £3m to access 90% co-investment funding. For larger levy-paying firms, the programmes offer easy access to levy funds to spend on apprenticeships.
Keith Richards, managing director of engagement at the CII, said: “Attracting and retaining the very best talent is vitally important for our sector to continue providing the products and services consumers need and for us to build their trust in the work we do as a profession.
“We are, therefore, delighted to offer employers of all sizes across the insurance sector our Aspire Apprenticeships Programmes - an easy and convenient route to developing and attracting promising talent. This is part of the CII’s wider classroom to boardroom strategy looking to support professionals throughout their career in insurance and financial planning.”
