David was a fantastic trainer. He made a 2 day course humorous and a joy, making some complicated and tedious LIBF reading easy to understand and generally fun. His ways to help you remember important dates and information is fantastic and I personally would 100% recommend Simply Academy and David Beever. Thank you David :)

I found some of the work given to me wasn't always relevant to the course I was on, so at times I was questioning why I needed to complete it. That being said the support and help I received from my tutor, Margaret Bloor, was exceptional. She was understanding and supportive at all times.

Overall the apprenticeship was helpful, especially as someone completely new to the industry. There was plenty of support from Simply Academy, in particular from my Tutor, who was always on hand to help. Certain parts of the course seemed a bit unnecessary at times, but overall this was a very helpful course.
Financial Services Apprenticeships
Hiring and training an apprentice is an effective way for businesses of any size to develop a motivated, skilled and qualified workforce.
Financial Services Apprenticeships are work based learning programmes designed around the needs of employers. They are open to anyone aged 16 and over who meets the entry requirements, and can be used to train a new starter or reskill an existing employee. Apprentices learn while they earn, gaining real-life work experience alongside nationally recognised qualifications.
And as well as being a cost effective way to recruit and train new employees, many employers report that apprenticeships help to boost morale, motivation and productivity throughout their organisation.
Simply Academy have been designing and delivering apprenticeships within the Financial Services sector since 2017, so we’re the ideal partner to help you plan an apprenticeship scheme for your organisation. Our expert team of advisers can guide you through the process from your first expression of interest to recruiting your apprentice.
