FLA gains Government approval to create new motor finance apprenticeship

By CreditMan Wednesday, January 11, 2017

The Finance & Leasing Association (FLA), working alongside employers in a Trailblazer group, has won Government approval to develop a Motor Finance Specialist apprenticeship standard for the motor finance industry. We will now begin working with members, brokers and dealers to devise a training standard which will highlight the skills and knowledge that employers in our sector need.

Once the standard has been completed, the Motor Finance Specialist apprenticeship will be one of 3 million that the Government wants to see in action by 2020. These high quality apprenticeships aim to offer genuine alternatives to university but could also be combined with higher education to offer industry experience.
