"The graduate scheme organisers invest time and money into training, which shows. Formal training within specific teams is slow and sparse, which is frustrating."
Graduate, London
"We have regular training centrally on the grad scheme to help with our CII exams as well as additional soft-skill training. It's less structured within my team but still deliberately organised to give me the best development. A mix of shadowing and building up tasks has been the best approach."
Graduate, London
"The in-person training is fantastic, though the majority of training is online as mentors present from different locations across the UK to all UK grads. Online training can be monotonous, especially if the person presenting is not engaging."
Graduate, London
"Training has been very good. The only downside is that training is mostly conducted via video conferences as the graduates are placed all over the country. Sometimes this can be less effective than in person."
Graduate, Edinburgh
"I've had both online meetings and face-to-face meetings on a weekly basis."
Graduate, Manchester
"I've undergone training on networking and communication, which has enabled me to work on developing soft skills crucial for the industry that I'm in. I have undergone training on office systems and the general insurance industry, ensuring I am efficient in my role and compliant with regulations."
Graduate, London
"Within the graduate scheme there is a big emphasis on structured development including regular courses and revision sessions for our professional exams. In terms of on-the-job learning, the small size of my team has allowed me to rapidly learn about my role and directly apply those lessons."
Risk Management, Graduate, London
"There are training programmes focusing on technical knowledge and soft skills. These can sometimes be a bit slow in pace but this contrasts to the pace at which you are expected to get professional CII qualifications, which is extremely fast."
Graduate, Bristol
