Training, learning and qualifications

Just like other areas of your role, giving money guidance also calls for continuing professional development. 

Ongoing development is essential

Anyone who has money conversations with their customers should keep up to date with legislation, codes of practice and guidelines, including internal policies and procedures.

Maintaining the soft skills needed when giving guidance, such as communication skills, is also key. 

You may also want to want to give broader or more specialist money guidance in line with the technical domains and tiers set out in the Money Guidance Competency Framework. Simply select the areas that apply to your role – few people cover all aspects.
