Allianz Commercial hosted a launch event this week at the CII’s Great Hall, in its headquarters in the City of London, to welcome the insurer’s first intake of scholars specially selected for the new Allianz Partner Academy Scholarship Programme.
The 30 successful applicants, along with their broker sponsors, were joined by hosts Sandy Scott, CII and Chris Hanks, Allianz Insurance, along with representatives from Allianz’s regional branches.
The Company received more than 100 applications for the new scheme, which will enable scholars to achieve their CII Diploma in Insurance in 18 months with access to first-class tuition, revision sessions, free study texts and networking opportunities. The courses begin in May and will take place at a variety of locations in the UK, including London, Manchester and Birmingham.
Chris Hanks commented: “This is a fantastic new programme that is unique to Allianz and our partner brokers. The enhanced curriculum demonstrates our long-term commitment to raising professional standards across the industry. We are very pleased with the high standard of applications we received and look forward to working with tomorrow’s broking leaders to support them in achieving their CII Diploma in Insurance.“
