Lifelong Learning is a vital part of the IFoA strategy for the future of the actuarial profession. Effective professionals posses relevant and contemporary skill sets.
We must provide the best opportunities for members' Lifelong Learning needs.
Lifelong Learning can be delivered by a variety of methods to suit different working styles and interests. Individuals take responsibility for their own personal development and careers. As a professional body supporting actuaries we will ensure our members have access to all the resources they need.
Lifelong Learners are motivated to never stop learning
