All training materials for the first module of the Diploma for Financial Advisers, DipFA, Financial Service Regulations and Ethics (FSRE) was placed online on the Financial Planning giant's new FRSE4ALL portal in June.
All Level 4 training materials have now also been moved online, supported by videos, voice overs and questions to check understanding. The firm said students benefit significantly from having dedicated tutorial sessions, and therefore students will continue to benefit from having a dedicated trainer through the online service.
The move to a more flexible online learning programme also means that students can now become Level 4 qualified in 30 weeks, a change from the firm's current 47-week programme.
Julian Hince, head of training at the Quilter Financial Adviser School, said: “During the pandemic we and our students had to adapt so they could continue their journey to becoming Financial Planners. We had always planned to move toward digital learning, but Covid-19 accelerated the process.
Mr Hince added that digital learning has the capacity to democratise the prospect of becoming a Financial Planner.
He said: "We know many people have busy lives, schedules and commitments, but still want to pursue a career change. Through offering QFAS online we hope to welcome even more diverse cohorts of students keen to become the next generation of Financial Planners.”
