Answers in Retirement Group (AIR Group) has recently announced the launch of its new physical ‘Learning Hub’ for later life advisers.
The new hub will primarily be based out of AIR Group’s new Gloucester-based premises, providing advisers with both entry and advanced-level training courses on all its Later Life Academy (LLA) modules, while also offering workshops on its AIR Sourcing software.
The group has reported that the hub will be headed by training and marketing manager Danielle Wilson and training and lead generation manager Helen Smith.
In October, the Learning Hub will be announcing details of a national series of events working with both Retirement Interest-Only (RIO) and equity release providers to offer an ‘Introduction to later life lending’ course that will cover a full range of related topics including best practice, sector opportunities, potential pitfalls, client types and product variations.
AIR Group chief executive officer Stuart Wilson commented: “The Learning Hub, much like the other areas of our business, needs to be responsive to the quick developments and fast rates of progression within the sector. The Later Life Academy is still aiming towards creating advisers whose ability to give holistic, accurate advice to their clients is absolutely paramount, so we’ve updated our training to help ensure that this is the case.
“Not only will we target advisers fresh to the sector in giving ‘beginner level’ sessions but will aid those already experienced advisers in increasing their knowledge and skills around the sector by providing advanced level sessions too. We are determined to help shape this sector by creating advisers who can continue to grow and develop, as the market does the same, so that the aging population is more than sufficiently provided for.”
