Introducing the Qualification Mentoring Scheme - 2024 intake
Studying towards your Advanced Diploma in Insurance (ACII) or Advanced Diploma in Financial Planning (APFS)? Recently qualified and keen to help others achieve the same? The IIL Qualification Mentoring Scheme is now open for applications to join the 2024 intake.
Studying can be a lonely and confusing experience. 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.
Perhaps you have reached a stage in your career when you would like to put something back into your professional community. Volunteering as a Buddy Mentor is a real, practical way of doing so.
This scheme aims to motivate Mentees 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.
Find out more about the scheme from those in the know, including:
- Michael Howard FCII, Chair, Qualification Mentoring Committee (Partner, Wynterhill)
- Christine Cotterell FCII, Qualification Mentoring Committee Member and Buddy Mentor (Senior Account Handler, Specialist Risk Group)
- Matthew Knight ACII, Buddy Mentor (Financial Analyst, Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty)
- Bamishe Alao Cert CII, Mentee (Graduate, Directors & Officers, FINEX, WTW)
The scheme programme includes several educational and motivational events a year. Participants must be members of the Insurance Institute of London and committed for up to three years.
The closing date for applications is 22 January 2024

This demonstrates the quality of an event and that it meets CII member CPD scheme requirements.
1 hour's CPD can be claimed for this event if relevant to your learning and development needs.
It is recommended that you keep any evidence of the CPD activity you have completed and upload copies to the recording tool as the CII may ask to see this if your record is selected for review. Details of the scheme can be viewed online at www.cii.co.uk/cpd.
