Train to diploma level and achieve competent adviser status

Whether you already have a background in financial services or not, The Financial Adviser School’s 18 month training programme will equip you with the skills and knowledge and provide you with the supervision required to achieve full Competent Adviser Status.

The programme is structured to be accommodated by people in full time employment and enables you to begin advising on some product areas within 6 to 8 months, giving you the chance to supplement your income or offset these earnings against your fees.

The programme is taught by a combination of distance learning with online support and scheduled virtual classrooms with a dedicated tutor online. Unlike more traditional qualification routes, we don’t just concentrate on the technical elements of the job, we also teach you the necessary practical business skills, personal skills and adviser skills which are developed during weekend face to face classroom events, these take place once every 5 weeks. 

Post graduation you will be able to take advantage of a guaranteed self employed contract within Journey Financial Advice Ltd, work alongside or within an established adviser firm or set up your own business.

The Financial Adviser School is part of Sesame Bankhall Group, the UK’s largest provider of retail financial advice and is sponsored by Friends Life, Partnership, Zurich and Aegon. Jointly, we are committed to nurturing and developing the next generation of professional financial advisers.
