What is the background to this programme?
Insurance touches the lives of everyone and allows us to operate secure in the knowledge that should the worst happen, we will have the support we need. The Insurance Professional Apprenticeship provides a development pathway that will allow apprentices to specialise in a particular area of the industry with supporting and appropriate professional qualifications. The standard is, therefore, of broad application across the insurance sector.
Some of the different areas of insurance that an apprentice could be involved in may include, broking, client management, underwriting, claims, operations, loss adjusting, reinsurance, risk management, product and pricing and complaint handling.
What qualification is achieved?
By passing the apprenticeship, professional registration can be achieved by application to the relevant Professional Body with recognised status of Dip CII, (Chartered Insurance Institute), or Dip CILA (Chartered Institute of Loss Adjusters). It is also a stepping stone on the route to full Advanced Diploma qualification.
