Norwich Union launches virtual learning centre for Independent Financial Advisers


Norwich Union – has become the first life provider to launch a free virtual learning centre for independent financial advisers (IFAs) after an extensive pilot period.

IFAs are now able to register online to enter the virtual learning centre. On entry, they will gain access to a wealth of interactive training material as well as support for advanced professional IFA qualifications covering taxation, trusts, personal investment planning and pensions. Courses on ‘Flexible Retirement Solutions’ and ‘Business Financial Solutions’ covering individual retirement planning options and pension fund support for business development are also available.

The virtual learning centre is fully up-to-date with new courses and subject areas continuously being added to meet IFAs growing learning requirements and changes in financial planning legislation. The site also houses its own library, classroom, games room, communications room and even an examination hall.

The virtual learning centre has been developed by Knowledge=Power, a technology company, using a system known as Alto.

Marcus Pailing, marketing manager at Knowledge=Power says “Norwich Union’s use of technology to deliver this type of training will be extremely beneficial to IFAs, particularly with the ever increasing regulation in the industry where training is a major element of compliance. One of the key benefits of the Alto platform is that it provides an engaging and fun environment. IFAs taking the courses will find them stimulating and, ultimately, memorable. The courses can also be accessed any time, any place, which is a major plus point for any busy professional.”

Steve Minns, IFA added value support manager, Norwich Union says: “This new introduction is an exciting development representing a significant investment and commitment on the part of Norwich Union to the IFA market and to our added value offering. The site itself has been designed to provide IFAs with an attractive, fun and flexible way of learning, enabling them to use it at their own pace and to suit their own style of learning.”
