PosSol expands level 4 training

Positive Solutions is set to roll out its apprenticeship scheme across the country and is in talks with universities about developing a follow-up programme to bring candidates up to QCF level four.

The firm launched a pilot of the scheme with 20 apprentices spread between London and Manchester in December. Six months on, Positive Solutions will now roll it out nationwide, citing “enormous demand”.

The scheme trains candidates to the CII’s certificate in financial planning level in six to 12 months through a mixture of work-based, classroom and one-to-one training. The firm aims to sign up 500 apprentices by the end of 2010.

Positive Solutions is also talking to universities about a possible programme of learning to take these apprentices, and potentially other candidates, to QCF level four.
