Practical training time

Filip Slipaczek and myself have decided that due to recent unpleasant criticism about my lack of practical experience, I will be taking a slight hiatus to complete some on-the-job practical work experience/training. This has so far involved dealing with:1: Standard administration arising from the Ascentric Funds direct investment wrap.2: Compiling suitability letters for mortgages and financial services products.3: Assisting Filip with the FSA’s workplace capability program presentations.4: I will be assisting Filip with the installation of the IntelliFlow front and back-office system.

I am also keeping a CPD file covering my on-the-job training together with the selection of seminars that I have attended so far.

I have every intention that despite the unpleasant comments, I will not be completing my Cefa and Cemap qualifications before my 18th birthday.
