Representatives from Finance Isle of Man will be in attendance for this year’s Money Live Summit, one of Europe’s leading retail banking conferences.
In addition to this success with the banking qualifications Mr Waterhouse stated there had also been tremendous success with the new schools qualifications. Ballakermeen High School has led the way with introducing the level three Financial Capability qualification to their sixth form last year. 23 out of the 25 students who registered for the course achieved passes, including distinctions at the final exams sat in May 2018. This figure is expected to increase to an impressive 100% success rate following resits. These awards are internationally recognised and provide valuable UCAS points to help students achieve their university of choice. The online studying was also supported by ‘real-world’ training delivered by key members of the Isle of Man financial sector.
Globally, there has never been a more interesting time to develop and grow a career in banking. We expect banks to continue looking for motivated and ambitious professionals to join their teams and advise clients and customers on navigating the financial landscape. Also, as online banking technology continues to expand, tech-savvy individuals will be in demand.
