Air LLA training programme receives LIBF endorsement

Air Later Life Academy (LLA) has announced that its training programme has received endorsement from The London Institute of Banking & Finance (LIBF).

Air LLA, the commercial and training organisation for later life advisers, provides structured continued-professional-development (CPD) and accredited training around a variety of core topics, to ensure its members have a strong foundation of knowledge in the later life market – in order to offer better advice to clients.

The training organisation has also announced it will be seeking full LIBF accreditation to continue improving the standards of education, knowledge and qualifications within the later life market.

Air Group CEO, Stuart Wilson, commented: “This endorsement of the Air LLA learning and training programme by the LIBF is a real feather in the cap for the organisation, and should provide our adviser members with greater confidence in the training and learning options we offer.

“We will be working closely with the LIBF team, and as a result, can also announce we will be developing our provision with a view to seeking accreditation. This will not only allow us to further demonstrate the depth, range and quality of our overall Academy offering, but enable programme participants to count their achievements to their next qualifications.

“This is an exciting time for the Academy, and we would urge any adviser who wants to take the later life sector seriously, to contact us in order to ensure they have the best foundations in order to provide the best advice.”

The LIBF is a professional awarding body for industry qualifications that covers a range of subjects, including regulated financial advice, both in the UK and globally.

Director of corporate and professional qualifications at the LIBF, Mark Heaton, added: “We are really pleased to be able to endorse the Air LLA learning and training programme, which has been established to support advisers in developing the skills and knowledge they need to help customers with planning for later life.

“The Academy’s programme is relevant, structured and well-managed, and combines formal learning with application in practice which is our preferred approach. Later life planning has become increasingly complex, and with changing demographics, customer demand is surely set to grow.

“It’s essential for advisers to be able to access high-quality education programmes to ensure they can give the best possible advice and support when their customers need it.”
