Our team are experts in delivering funded apprenticeships incorporating professional qualifications. We deliver 22 different programmes focused on the Financial Services and Insurance sector. The Financial Planning Academy is 3 of these programmes combined with additional soft skills module content. Funding is available for levy and non-levy firms alike and programmes are open to all ages. Learners can join at any stage of the Academy subject to prior learning and their current role. Places on the Academy are available to individuals to create groups of 20 and cohorts are launched quarterly.
The programmes are 18-24 months in duration and the levy funding band is £9000 per programme. Non-levy firms need to contribute 5% of this cost (£450) per learner.

Ciara Octigan Financial Advisor Level 4
“I was really impressed with the amount of resources and expertise that were available. Everything I needed was provided by Davies, the environment was so supportive, and I never felt like I had to do anything on my own. Even the office would help by re-arranging exam times.
I always knew where I was on the grading system, I had been aiming for a distinction and I knew that it was well within my reach due to the review of my progress on a continuous basis. My coach and I had monthly meetings, which resulted in a formal record of progress, but my coach would also be there to support me informally, he was always at the end of the phone and had a huge wealth of resources that could help me.”
