About the course

Successful candidates applying for grad and school leavers schemes across London all have one thing in common. They all demonstrate the right mix of attitude, aptitude and knowledge at key points of the recruitment process.

Into Insurance is a free training course designed to help you illustrate the knowledge, preparation and behaviour organisations are looking for.  Our trainers have used their experience in recruiting and managing graduate and school leaver schemes in the insurance industry to give you insider tips and advice to help you get ahead.

To accommodate social distancing our summer 2021 programmes will be delivered as four half day sessions accessible through virtual classrooms. We hope to deliver a face to face programme in August should the guidelines allow.

Please find dates for 2021 virtual courses:

  • August: 10:00 – 16:00 on 23rd, 24th , 25th & 26th
  • October: 10:00 – 12:30 on 25th, 26th, 27th & 28th
