If you are new to pensions, have just become a trustee or are an HR professional, the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Academy's introductory course offers an insight into the world of UK pensions. If you want to know more about pensions, but are not yet ready to call yourself an expert, these courses are for you.





The trustee faculty provides training opportunities for new pensions trustees or anyone who is considering becoming a trustee. There are also learning opportunities for more experienced trustees including the Investment Foundations Certificate and governance reviews offered in collaboration with KPMG.


We also offer webinars on a variety of subjects which may interest trustees. Details of the next webinar will be available shortly, please check back again soon.


An exciting additional initiative for the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Academy is the Investment Foundations Certificate, offered by CFA Institute, a global community of investment professionals working to build an investment industry where investors interests come first, financial markets function at their best and economies grow.
