Insurance Times & CII support in Apprenticeships
Category : October 2015
Kick started earlier this year, the Insurance Times have joined forces with the Chartered Insurance Institute to promote apprenticeships within the industry. Hosting half day events in a number of cities, this event saw speakers from Insurance Times, CII, Zurich and a successful former apprentice, offering their experiences and the battles they face with a industry,which portrays a ‘dull’ and ‘uninspiring’ image. The afternoon allowed networking opportunities and a practical afternoon of presentations for TRS apprentices and others to get their teeth into!
The Replacement Service have employed 100% of apprentices and make up 40% of the company, ranging from apprenticeships in Software Development and Claims Handling to Social Media to Accountancy. Supporting Apprenticeships Live shows an initiative to change the perception young professionals have of insurance and together continue to offer more apprenticeships and insurance specific qualifications.
Answering questions from an Insurance Times reporter, TRS apprentices are to be featured in the next publication and online. For more information on the Insurance Times views on apprenticeships, visit www.insurancetimes.co.uk
