We've teamed up with the LIA to offer those undertaking the Insurance Practitioner Apprenticeship the option of completing a general insurance stream or financial advice stream of the programme. In practice, the difference between the two streams are as follows:
- You could work in areas such as personal insurance (e.g. motor, home), health insurance or commercial insurance
- You specialise in one of the three core industry areas – claims, underwriting or direct client advice
- You’ll earn the Accredited Product Adviser (APA) and Certified Insurance Practitioner (CIP) qualifications along the way
- You could work in areas such as financial advice, life assurance, loans, savings & investments and pensions
- You’ll earn the Professional Diploma in Financial Advice (QFA) along the way.
