At UKGI we have a firm belief in continuous professional development, as do many of the firms we work with, and training is a vital part of that.
CPD activity is undertaken to ensure your skills and knowledge are up to date and to support practical application within the role. We are delighted to be able to offer blended learning solutions that can be structured to meet the needs of the individual, the business and the Regulator.
The Regulator views training and competence from the perspective of compliance with the relevant principles and the outcomes which it will deliver to customers, as well as with specific rules and guidance. The Insurance Distribution Directive added more clarity to the rules for minimum CPD requirements but UKGI also recognises the importance of delivering value through investment in structured and relevant training.
Our blended learning options give you the flexibility to utilise eLearning, workshops, webinars and face to face solutions and we will work with you to determine the best fit for your needs.
We are therefore delighted to introduce our sister-company, Searchlight Insurance Training, whose specialist technical and soft skills training provision can dovetail with the compliance consultancy and regulatory training expertise offered by UKGI.
We can collaborate with Searchlight to provide a blend of consultancy and training expertise to meet your firm’s precise requirements. An example of this could be where we identify an issue in your business, such as deficiencies in claims management or client money handling, and Searchlight provide a focused training program for your staff to rectify the problem.
