We as a company have a genuine desire to remove traditional barriers to entry into the financial services sector, widening participation and addressing social mobility issues.
As part of our own evolutionary meaningful Corporate Social Responsibility outreach agenda, we have created an employer-led education programme that sets out to address diversity and inclusion, with proven social impact.
Through our training programme we educate disadvantaged individuals to a professionally competent standard of understanding and application in capital markets with our Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Financial Trading. The programme focuses on the knowledge, skills and behaviours as set out in the Level 6 Financial Services Apprenticeship Standard, developed by us, in conjunction with the likes of Barclays, HSBC, Santander, RBS, and Pimco to name but a few, as part of the Apprenticeship Standards Trailblazer process.
Additionally, our employability skills module concentrates on highly valued, industry required foundation skills, making individuals truly work-ready to embark on a sustainable career within the financial services sector.
Working together as an industry we can create positive escalation effects on individuals, families and communities.
All companies are encouraged to have a social mobility agenda and CSR programme. We encourage you to support us in this initiative in providing career opportunities as part of your own CSR agenda providing real social impact.
