The ACT is committed to providing the latest updates on apprenticeships to support our members and students, whether they are going through an apprenticeship, looking to put their employees onto an apprenticeship or starting to explore apprenticeship opportunities for the first time.
Financial Service Professional Apprenticeship
The Association of Corporate Treasurers (ACT) offers two Level 6 apprenticeship qualifications that are tailored for financial services professionals.
Both qualifications are part of the National Apprenticeships Scheme in England, included on the Financial Services Professional Standard (ST0472).
Employers in England can use their Apprenticeship Levy accounts to fund the training costs of their new and, in some cases, their existing finance trainees.
Apprenticeships are open to everyone in England. Become an apprentice in the financial services sector and as an employee you’ll receive a salary whilst you study for a recognised industry qualification at no cost to you.
As an apprentice, your employer will provide a structured programme to help you develop your professional skills. As apprenticeships are real jobs, you’ll need to apply for opportunities, just as you would for any other role. Agencies, career fairs, and job boards like the ACT’s are a good place to start.
