This year's annual Taxbriefs Training & Competence conference has been devised to analyse how T&C is working in practice, a year after N2.
It is essential that all those responsible for training & competence fully understand the implications of the shortly-to-be-unveiled FSA examination regime. This conference will be one of the earliest opportunities to learn about this direct from the FSA's head of training and competence, industry training and business ethics, Professor David Jackman.
Together with some of the leading industry exam providers, the first morning promises a unique opportunity to learn what is in store in the near future.
The first day's programme on December 3 (promoted by Taxbriefs and sponsored by SOFA The Society of Financial Advisers) has been designed to appeal both to retail and wholesale professionals. The second day's morning seminar on December 4 has been put together to address the particular issues applicable to the wholesale and institutional sector.
On December 3 2002 the conference chairman is Alan Maxwell, group audit and compliance director, Standard Life, and the speakers are: Professor David Jackman, head of training and competence, industry training and business ethics, Financial Services Authority; Lucy Courtenay, qualifications director, Chartered Insurance Institute; Tony Tudor, director, Institute of Financial Services; Liz Chiswell, head of training and development, Gerrard; David Paterson, compliance manager, Standard Life; Ian Patterson, partner, Patterson Sales Training; Mark Scott, head of technical training and T&C, Prudential UK and Europe, and Nick Bamford, managing director, Informed Choice.
