At Intelligencia Training, we fully evaluate all apprenticeship applications prior to induction on to the programme and develop a pathway that is bespoke to each individual, being relevant to both sector and their organisation. With a huge breadth of risk experience in our staff, covering Regulatory Compliance, Financial Services, Financial Crime and Cyber Security, Intelligencia Training are able to offer a bespoke and relevant compliance/risk pathway that is very specific to individual apprentice role.

The typical training period for the learners on our Risk/Compliance Officer Apprenticeship is 15 months and consists of classroom-based delivery sessions on either our premises or client sites as desired.

Specific modules and risk/compliance pathways for study are defined within employer scoping and learner skill scan.
