Another Apprenticeship success story - Zurich and Acorn work together


Another Apprenticeship success story - Zurich and Acorn work together

Natasha Ryan began her Apprenticeship journey when she started looking for a qualification to support her day-to-day role in the insurance sector.

With support from Acorn Learning Solutions, who have trained 4,386 apprentices over the past five years, Natasha began working towards a Level 2 Providing Financial Services  Apprenticeship, followed by a Level 3 Apprenticeship and also a CII Certificate in Insurance.

Natasha said:  "I decided on an Apprenticeship to build my insurance knowledge for the area in which I work.  I have learnt how my actions and decisions affect our customers and the business as a whole.  The CII exams I have completed allowed me to understand regulations, underwriting criteria and terminology.

"Following completion of my Level 2 Apprenticeship I applied for Level 3 to progress my development even further.  I started the second NVQ straight away so that my development was continuous.  I achieved Cert CII for my efforts in addition to the Apprenticeships and felt that I could apply myself further.  I have since signed up for the CII Diploma in Insurance.

Natasha added: "I hope that my continuous learning will assist me in starting a new position in the near future.  Gaining the qualifications has boosted my confidence; showing me that I can achieve what I put my mind to and hopefully will brighten my future career prospects.'

Helena Williams, Acorn's Corporate Development Director, said "Acorn is proud to support our clients to achieve these national standards of professional development.  Apprenticeships provide excellent opportunities for both new and existing staff to develop their formal qualifications as highlighted in this example."
