Stage 3 Professional Skills Training

The Professional Skills Training is Stage 3 of the IFoA’s 3-stage mandatory Professional Skills Training.

Stage 3 is an annual requirement to complete a minimum of 2 hours Professional Skills Training for those Members who are subject to the CPD Scheme 2020 (effective from 1 September 2020).

All Members to whom the CPD Scheme effective 1 September 2020 applies, need to complete two hours of Professional Skills Training annually, defined in the CPD Scheme as “CPD Activities with a Learning Outcome related to managing professional ethical challenges”.

The IFoA develops new online content each year to assist Members in meeting these requirements. This includes video case studies and other resources which can be accessed under Online Learning Resources.  In the current CPD year, there will be 3 phased releases of content from November 2020.

Request a Toolkit from professional.skills@actuaries.org.uk if you wish to run a professional skills session for your colleagues or local association.  This will give you access to downloadable links for the videos, useful tips on running a session and access to a range of supplementary content.

Professionalism CPD is also offered in the form of webinars on relevant topics, (either stand-alone or as part of a conference programme), details of which can be found on the Events Calendar.

Students may find the Professional Skills Training online resources helpful in meeting the professionalism Personal and Professional Development Plan (PPD) requirements.
