Technical Trainee Programme

Introduction

Insurance is a diverse and challenging industry offering a wide range of career opportunities for talented individuals.

If you have decided that university is not for you and you’d like to develop your skills and experience in the workplace, rather than the classroom, our technical trainee programme could offer you the opportunities to take your career to the next level.

If you’d like to gain a head start with an industry standard qualification while you earn and learn transferable business skills, then the 3-year technical trainee programme could be the opportunity that you are looking for.
