CPD Co-ordinators

CPD Co-ordinators play a key role in the effective engagement between organisations who employ our members and the Institute and Faculty of Actuaries (IFoA)

Organisations that employ IFoA members are encouraged by the IFoA to appoint a CPD Co-ordinator. This is an IFoA recommendation. Organisations with multiple offices often appoint one per office.  Some of the larger organisations appoint one CPD Co-ordinator per practice area, eg, a different person for Life and General Insurance within the same organisation.

We have created, following peer review, a CPD Co-ordinators Guide providing you with information about this role. Within the guide you will find: 

  • Page 4:  sets out the information CPD Co-ordinators will receive
  • Page 7:  provides opportunities for your organisation to engage 
  • Page 11: gives nine examples: how others do it – in this section nine CPD Co-ordinators share their thoughts.

As CPD Co-ordinator you will also receive the CPD Co-ordinators quarterly newsletter as well as other updates, from time to time.

    Retail banking is going through a period of substantial change as it moves into the digital age. Banks have large amounts of data about their customers and about their risks. Open data application programming interface (APIs) and data science are enabling banks to use their data to offer innovative and sometimes personalised services. Data science is also adding value in risk areas such as fraud detection and cyber security. At the same time, the move to online banking is making it easier for firms including fintechs to enter banking without having to establish branch networks.

    Covid-19 has required an urgent and cross-practice initiative to facilitate the extensive impact this pandemic has across all industries. IFoA members have been keen to contribute in a different way, so we developed the IFoA Covid-19 Action Taskforce [ICAT] to coordinate our effort, with a more efficient governance.

    We have over 500 volunteers and countless topics which we have amalgamated into 93 workstreams.
