NIG launches the first apprenticeship programme for insurance brokers


NIG are thrilled to be the first insurer to launch an apprenticeship programme for brokers. They have selected 10 broker candidates for a two-year level 4 apprenticeship scheme, called First Forward.

NIG first told their First brokers (NIG’s top 50 independent brokers) about First Forward in September, following the Government announcement to allow transfers of levy to third parties. The programme covers CII DIP qualifications, skills-based training, mentoring and greater industry exposure.

NIG worked with leading industry training company, Wiser Academy, to design the two-year apprenticeship programme and co-hosted a launch event at the Houses of Parliament in London. The event welcomed the ten inaugural First Forward apprentices and their brokerage sponsors.
