The Fast Track programme will allow students to achieve a DipFA qualification in three months
The Quilter Financial Adviser School is pleased to launch Fast Track, a unique opportunity for students looking to accelerate their studies to become a financial adviser.
The Fast Track programme is aimed for those who want to study full time to speed up the time it takes for them to obtain a Diploma for Financial Advisers. The programme will take three months, while the standard part time programme takes 47 weeks.
The programme is open for anyone to apply. Quilter will cover tuition fees, overnight accommodation and travel expenses if a graduate remains within Quilter Financial Planning as a restricted financial planner for two years.
The Quilter Financial Adviser School offers a number of programmes including a Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice (CeMAP) and a 58 week training programme, which trains advisers on Quilter Financial Planning’s systems and processes.
The Quilter Financial Adviser School has had 148 graduates since 2016, of which 20 were CeMAP only.
Scott Stevens, director of adviser recruitment and acquisition at Quilter Financial Planning:
“Quilter is committed to making advice more accessible and at the moment we are facing a dramatic and growing advice gap. One in five financial advisers are planning to retire in the next five years according to the Heath Report Three.
“We’ve seen a demand at the Quilter Financial Adviser School for an intense, shortened course for those that want to jump straight into a career as a financial adviser, particularly those who are looking for a career change.”
