To support apprenticeships for the Pensions Industry, the PMI has been central to some of the exciting new apprenticeship developments in Workplace Pensions. The PMI has worked in collaboration with a number of employers and other professional bodies, as part of ‘trailblazer’ groups to create two new apprenticeships: the entry Level 3 Workplace Pensions Administrator or Consultant apprenticeship and the Higher Level 6 Financial Services Professional apprenticeship, which has a tailored Pensions pathway. As these new apprenticeships are designed by employers and other industry experts you can be confident that they have a great fit for your job roles, providing a new entry route and progression pathways for the profession.
The great news is that both these new apprenticeships include the relevant PMI professional qualifications, so you can use the apprenticeships to deliver the qualifications you need – using apprenticeship funding to pay for those (either from Government or via your apprenticeship Levy).
As well as being the awarding organisation for these aligned qualifications, the PMI are also approved as an end-point assessment organisation for the Workplace Pensions Consultant/Administrator apprenticeship. This adds another dimension of professional standing and rigour to the apprenticeship, and places the PMI in a great position to support your organisation’s apprenticeship journey.
