AiR Club are incredibly proud we protected our staff, made no redundancies or furloughed anybody, and boosted telephony and online chat capacity.
We expanded our rolling programme of development, not only for members, but on a broader basis to support the wider sector, with over 100 hours of webinars delivered.
Our CEO and Operations Director were engaged with the Competency framework and ‘Meeting of Minds’ forum with the Equity Release Council. Our CEO engaged with exam bodies, the ERC and providers to discuss training and development needs in the sectors’ future.
We were delighted to launch a personalised “mentoring programme” for a select number of new firms, with our CEO giving up his time to support and guide these firms.
In October we were awarded full LIBF Accreditation for our Club Academy and we are delighted we now provide this development programme to over 500 members.
In November 2020 we will deliver our ‘ON AIR’ DIGITAL CONFERENCE to deliver over 20 online development and education sessions.
