The network is planning to start a pilot for the school this summer and is aiming to take on 20 trainees. It would seek to get them qualified to QCF level four within two years.
The school will particularly target people who already have work experience, either in financial services or another sector, rather than graduates.
The network says trainees would be paid a salary, either funded by the member firms who take them on or by providers wishing to sponsor the scheme.
Sesame managing director Nick Kelly says: “We are trying to find a way of getting new blood into the sector, not just by recruiting students, but also those returning to work or hoping to move into the IFA space from another industry as we think many consumers would prefer to talk to someone with life experience.
“It is also a way of helping members to grow their businesses without them having to spend huge amounts of money on recruitment.”
