Quilter's adviser school has launched a fast track course allowing students to achieve a Diploma for Financial Advisers in just three months.
The company will cover tuition fees, overnight accommodation and travel expenses if a graduate remains within Quilter Financial Planning as a restricted financial planner for two years.
Scott Stevens, director of adviser recruitment and acquisition at Quilter Financial Planning, commented: "Quilter is committed to making advice more accessible and at the moment we are facing a dramatic and growing advice gap. One in five financial advisers are planning to retire in the next five years according to the Heath Report Three.
We’ve seen a demand at the Quilter Financial Adviser School for an intense, shortened course for those that want to jump straight into a career as a financial adviser"
"We've seen a demand at the Quilter Financial Adviser School for an intense, shortened course for those that want to jump straight into a career as a financial adviser, particularly those who are looking for a career change."
The Diploma programme will take three months compared to the standard part time programme which takes 47 weeks.
The school has produced 148 graduates since 2016 and also offers a 58-week Certificate in Mortgage Advice and Practice programme, which trains advisers on the systems and processes used at Quilter Financial Planning.
