We are specialists in creating engaging learning solutions for early careers
Too many early careers programmes focus heavily on the ‘what’ with too much emphasis on technical and industry skills. We take a different approach to ensure we also focus on the ‘how’, looking to develop behaviours that align with your organisational values and culture, and the way you do business. This way, our early careers solutions develop a powerful mix of technical, commercial and professional skills to ensure your new hires make the best possible start in their early careers and add value from day one.
Our tailored training solutions for the insurance industry cut through the complexity of insurance to help your people make the link between behaviours and performance, whatever their role in your insurance business. From speciality to general insurance, brokers to reinsurers, syndicates to managing agents – we work across the insurance industry. Our portfolio of flexible learning solutions includes a broad range of: insightful commercial skills workshops; unique and interactive risk and insurance simulations; and professional skills workshops set in the context of insurance.
We are specialists in early careers programmes (school leavers, apprentices, interns, graduates) and new and lateral hire onboarding, as well as programmes designed to support functional specialists such as underwriters, actuaries, portfolio managers, claims, finance and much more.
