2 min read

BT Group Licensees (BTGL) – made up of Securitor, BT Select and Licensee Select – has launched a new, flexible and digital Learning Channel for advisers, representing the future direction of adviser education.

The development of the Learning Channel reflects BTGL’s desire to deliver advisers quality and inspiring education programs in a timely manner that helps drive a culture and community of learning.

According to Mr Phil Butterworth, General Manger of Group Licensees, BT Financial Group (BTFG), this is another great innovation by BTFG for the advice industry.

“We want to set and challenge what is possible in the advice industry and this means being innovative in areas such as education and learning which are key platforms in the professionalism of our advisers and of our industry.”

BT Group Licensee’s Head of Licensee Development, Ms Annick Donat is the key architect behind the BTGL Learning Channel.

“This new learning framework enables our advisers and broader support teams to access this tool in their own time versus the advice industry dictating a time,” she says. “It’s a real breakthrough for adviser education and professionalism.”

The BTGL Learning Channel will digitise Professional Development days, tailor adviser education programs to their experience levels and increase adviser education while ensuring productivity and managing cost. The aim is to make access to quality learning simple, accessible and relevant.

The learning framework includes practice management, compliance, technical, insurance and investments and celebrity lessons designed to inspire action. There are currently ten key learning topics and more than 35 educational and leadership videos on the site.

“Advisers must not only meet educational standards but maintain them as well,” says Butterworth. “The BTGL Learning Channel satisfies this need in a state of the art, digital, and learner-led way.”
