What if I don't come from a Financial Services background?

Our trainees come from a wide range of backgrounds.

We offer a separate series of 3x 90-minute online interactive Personal Finance Seminars, designed for delegates who do not have any formal training in personal finance and wish to expand their knowledge.

You book it separately as an optional extra.
