Openwork unveils business school for financial advisers

To help them with commercial and management development


UK advice network The Openwork Partnership has unveiled a business school aimed at financial advisers.

The move stems from an increase in advisers that are also business owners, the firm said.

The Openwork Business School will extend its training beyond technical and professional qualifications to include commercial and management development.

The network said this will help advisers who want to build and run their own business and those who want to advance their management career.

The business school will leverage the work that the Openwork Academy has been doing in training financial advisers.

Participants will be able to learn both digitally and face-to-face as well as have access to personal development “anywhere” and “at any time”.

Skills development

Philip Howell, chief executive of The Openwork Partnership, said: “This is an exciting initiative. With the launch of the Openwork Business School, we intend to take professional development in our industry to a new level, both for advisers and colleagues at the centre.

“By enabling advisers and colleagues to share their professional development and business experience together throughout their career journeys, we will enjoy a still higher degree of skills transfer and at the same time be creating an enduring alumnus inside The Openwork Partnership for the benefit of all.”
