This apprenticeship develops key business Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours, including servicing clients and supporting the advice given by qualified actuaries, through a combination of work-based training and studying for professional exams.

Study for the professional exams is via a combination of textbooks, online progress tests and practice exams, supported by videos and Online Classroom Live teaching from BPP’s expert actuarial tutors.
