Qualification Mentoring Scheme - 2021 intake

Are you looking for qualification support or interested in mentoring? Applications are now open for the Insurance Institute of London’s 2021 Qualification Mentoring Scheme intake.

Studying towards your Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII) or Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning (APFS) can be a lonely and confusing experience. It can be difficult juggling work and personal commitments. Some find the array of subjects confusing when it comes to deciding the order in which to take them. Others find the step up from Certificate to Diploma level bigger than they were expecting, and members can also struggle due to lack of employer support.

The IIL Qualification Mentoring Scheme aims to provide mentees with motivation, via a peer group, led by a buddy mentor - someone who has recently qualified themselves so has fresh first-hand experience of the challenges faced and is keen to help others achieve the same.

The scheme takes a peer-led, team-based approach to encourage and support members in achieving the ACII or APFS qualification – over the course of three years, from any starting point, to reach their full potential.

Further details can be found in the QMS brochure along with application forms for mentors and mentees. Please state your area of business on your application form so you can be allocated to either a general insurance or financial planning mentoring team. Participants must be members of the Insurance Institute of London and committed for a three-year period.

The deadline for Mentor and Mentee applications has been extended to Monday 1 February and the launch event will take place on Monday 22 February.

Please contact Gemma Warren (07436 263847) with any queries.
