Sesame Bankhall Group has launched its Financial Adviser School and is preparing for the first intake of students.
The network says an initial pilot phase will train 15 students to QCF Level 4 status inside 18 months.
Candidates will be put through a selection process in May which will assess aptitude, commitment, experience and qualifications before the successful students join the school in June.
After the pilot scheme is set up, Sesame will take in further students.
Sesame Bankhall Group executive chairman Ivan Martin says: “The lack of clear entry routes and career paths for people coming into our profession is a real issue and The Financial Adviser School delivers a practical solution.”
