The Insurance Charities - Funding for training and learning now available during Covid-19

In response to the Covid 19 crisis, the CII’s Education and Training Trust has launched a fund to provide access to training and professional development.

Applicants will be able to secure the full cost of their training and choose the course and provider.

The course must be relevant to the insurance/financial planning sector and is only available to those already working in these areas.

Applicants do not need to be members of the CII.

This new scheme will be administered by The Insurance Charities and will continue to run whilst funds are available.

Who can apply?
This fund will solely be available to:

  • those working in the insurance and financial planning sector in the UK and Ireland and;
  • those who have been furloughed, are unemployed, have suffered business collapse, have been made redundant or are still working but concerned for the future.

Please read the full eligibility criteria.

What do I need to provide?
You will need to provide evidence of your insurance service, full course details, and self-certification of financial need.

How do I apply?
Please complete and sign the application form and return via email, with any supporting documents.
