Allianz launches its Broker Apprenticeship Programme
Authored by Allianz
Allianz Insurance has launched the Allianz Broker Apprenticeship Programme, as part of its commitment to invest in the industry leaders of the future.
Developed with specialist apprenticeship training provider, Davies Learning Solutions, the programme provides candidates with the essential knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to excel in their role. It also supports them to achieve insurance qualifications from the Chartered Insurance Institute.
Building on Allianz’s existing Broker Training programme which provides webinars, LinkedIn Learning access and technical broker training programmes to brokers, the new apprentice scheme will provide candidates with monthly one-to-one sessions, tutor-led virtual guidance workshops and additional learning opportunities.
The apprenticeship comes in three levels, each with differing outcomes and objectives.
Insurance Practitioner – Entry level programme for those looking to develop their career in the insurance industry.
Insurance Professional – A development pathway which allows candidates to specialise in a particular area of the insurance industry with supporting qualifications.
Senior Insurance Professional – Develops skills needed to succeed at a senior level in the insurance industry.
Allianz will fund the cost of the apprenticeship training, and CII certification training and exams costs for the brokers chosen to participate.
Sarah Mallaby, director of broker markets, Allianz Insurance, said: “Investing in people and talent across the industry is something that we’re hugely passionate about, so we are really excited to be launching the new Allianz Broker Apprenticeship Programme.
“We believe that this new programme will not only benefit the careers of individual brokers, but also the insurance sector as a whole. We want to support our broker partners to build the next generation of industry leaders and experts. I believe that together we can drive forward professionalism and expertise, whilst attracting new talent to the profession.”
Marcus Bowsher, managing director at Davies’ learning solutions division added: “We are delighted to work with Allianz to develop apprenticeship programmes that support the development of the skills, knowledge and behaviours the insurance industry needs for the future. Apprenticeships are highly valued, portable and an enabler for career progression. Our insurance specialist coaches are looking forward to welcoming Allianz’s new cohort to our programmes over the coming months.”
To find out more and apply for the apprenticeship programme, brokers should speak to their local Allianz Business Developers. The deadline for applications is 31 January 2021.
