“We are delighted to be partnering with TFTA to ensure that potential mortgage advisers have the necessary knowledge and skills in order to make their start in the marketplace.”

She adds: “Bringing fresh talent into the market is a key objective for PNG and our commitment extends beyond the initial course into a real opportunity to make their mark within the PNG organisation.”

TFTA is based at Bank in the City of London and offers students full or part-time courses in mortgage advice.

It trains more than 300 candidates each month with the aim of getting them qualified and into jobs.
