Tax Relief


Tax relief can be claimed on tuition fees. Applicants are advised to contact their local tax office in relation to this and to note that the course must be delivered through or in conjunction with an approved institution. For more information: click here

Many universities and institutions offer bursaries so it is useful to keep to regularly check the institutions website for new funding opportunities. When researching finance options have a look in their fees and funding section for up to date information.

  Hint: Insurance
Ongoing training is common and encouraged in my job, there is a large emphasis placed on things such as customer interaction and complaint handling. I have always taken part in this in the past and fully intend to do so in the future.

Continuous Professional Development is also highly important and I try to do as much as possible each year, obviously meeting my required target but sometimes exceeding the target if there are other particular courses that take my interest.

As regards education I have registered for the Professional Certificate in General Insurance for QFA’s exam due to take place in January 2016.
