The CII's Education and Training Trust has given £25,000 to the Insurance Charities, to ensure about 100 professionals suffering financial hardship as a result of Covid-19 can obtain qualifications to improve their future employment prospects.
On behalf of the CII's Education and Training Trust, The Insurance Charities will administer applications for the full funding of training and reimburse eligible applicants for the costs of learning upon provision of a receipt from a relevant education provider.
Applicants do not need to be members of the CII to request funding for their learning and development, but they must have worked in insurance and wish to complete studies to further their career in the profession.
For those who do not qualify for the scheme, the CII will continue to offer a 20% discount on digital learning materials available for both members and non-members who as a result of Covid-19 were furloughed or have seen a material reduction in their income.
This discount applies where the individual's learning costs were not funded or subsidised by their employer.
Those who are interested in applying should contact firstname.lastname@example.org, detailing their personal circumstances. The CII's customer support team will provide guidance on how to redeem a discount voucher.
