23rd February 2022Tweet
Members of the Association of British Insurers (ABI) have committed to double the number of apprenticeships across the insurance and long-term savings sector to 2,500 by 2025.
Members will offer apprenticeship opportunities to school leavers and upwards to promote the sector to those who might not have considered it, further career opportunities will be introduced outside of London, while members will increase access and inclusion by increasing the number of entry level and training opportunities for people regardless of background and experience.
Hannah Gurga, ABI Director General said: “As one of the largest industries in the UK, employing 320,000 people, we have an important role to play in supporting and developing people’s careers throughout the country. Doubling the number of apprenticeships is an important step in our continued efforts to boost diversity and inclusion across the sector, to provide career opportunities at all levels and to ensure our workforce reflects the communities we serve.”Tweet
