Routes to Chartered Status

In response to feedback from students and employers, we have launched a professional qualifications framework that is focused on providing firms and individuals with the skills and capability needed to perform in today’s financial services industry.

Individuals can study for qualifications that are directly relevant to their current role as well as progressing towards recognised Professional and Chartered designations as their careers develop. Delivery and assessments are flexible to fit around busy work commitments and timescales. The framework is designed to align with the apprenticeship standards in financial services.

Whether you are new to the sector, looking to enhance your technical and specialist knowledge or an experienced professional, the framework has been designed to support you throughout every career stage. Your learning will ensure you develop the knowledge, skills and competence required to excel.

About the course
This programme gives you insight into the industry as a whole whilst allowing you to tailor the course to subjects of interest and your career aspirations. It’s designed to provide you with the foundation knowledge for a career in banking.

You will get to grips with the workings of the sector both from an organisational point of view and in respect of the financial markets, covering the essential concepts of risk that underpin financial decision making.
Building on this, you will gain specific understanding of the commercial environment in which banks operate, the principles of management and organisational effectiveness. There is also an opportunity to build specialist knowledge in retail or corporate financial services or to undertake a work placement within the industry.
LiFE gives students financial education on a ‘learning by doing’ basis through accessible e-learning.
 
The LiFE Programme has been developed to ensure more students gain invaluable financial awareness. Despite the inclusion of Financial Capability in the National Curriculum, schools continue to experience difficulty allocating time and space in the curriculum to deliver financial education. Mapped to the coverage in Mathematics and Citizenship, this flexible programme accessible anywhere, meets the current restraints on teacher’s time and resources, while giving students key life skills.  
The LiFE Programme does not rely on timetabled teaching time, requiring minimal intervention by teaching/support staff; in fact, students will be able to use tutor/mentor time, after school clubs and a host of enrichment opportunities to access the programme. Students can study at their own pace on an online learning platform that really engages them with the content.

Starting from just $10 per student, the LiFE Programme enables students to receive financial education at a fraction of the cost of formal qualifications.
