Bespoke Education Solutions

The challenges for the insurance and financial sectors are numerous, from navigating a path forward through the unprecedented times of Covid, Brexit and increasing competition, to emerging trends such as new approaches to underwriting, delivery and customer service. All of this leads to an increased need for employee upskilling. In addition, development of the workplace of the future means dealing with remote work and managing data, workflows and team structures and dynamics in a changed environment. The team at CIRDAS and the Faculty of Lifelong Learning are here to help navigate these challenges so you can future-proof your business. This is done through bespoke upskilling and reskilling educational solutions that offer your team the opportunity to earn micro-credentials that enhance their ability to respond to contemporary organisational needs.
