Apprenticeships for Compliance and Risk roles – have your say

As part of the Government’s Trailblazer Apprenticeships, a group are developing two new Financial Services apprenticeships for Compliance and Risk roles.  The Compliance/Risk Officer deals with relatively straightforward support to the business across a range of possible areas of compliance/risk and is at Level 3 (A Level). The Senior Compliance/Risk Specialist deals with more complex situations, providing high quality advice and input to the business in their area of specialisation and is at Level 6 (Degree level). CICM would appreciate your feedback on how well it fits credit risk management roles.

A group of employers, led by Lloyds Bank and including Barclays, RBS, TSB, Nationwide, Canada Life, Geoban, Sense, Leeds Building Society, Aon Hewitt, Skipton Building Society, Cabot Financial, Lowell Group have created the structure of these apprenticeships contained in this survey.

They have designed these apprenticeships to be flexible enough to incorporate Compliance/Risk roles in a wide range of organisations, allowing employers to fit their roles into the description contained in the apprenticeship standard. Please check its relevance for credit risk management – CICM qualifications have been included.

To ensure that the apprenticeships we are developing are fit for purpose, the group need feedback from a wide range of employers who might use them to ensure they closely reflect real roles in the sector. This survey has been created to establish what knowledge, skills and behaviours you would expect people to have in these roles.

We would really value your input which will take 10-25 minutes of your time. The survey will be open until 10 February.
