Quality money management support through practitioners

Financial capability practitioners

We believe that the thousands of practitioners who help people across the UK with their financial capability are at the heart of effective, high quality support.

Together we will raise the status and profile of financial capability support and the quality and consistency of its delivery.

Over the next few years we will deliver a programme of work that specifically focuses on practitioners, and how we can help you to provide the best possible support for the people you serve. It will be a key strand of work in helping to achieve the aims of the financial capability strategy.

Attracting and developing practitioners

We want to know that people are receiving quality money support, and to help the sector attract, retain and develop people; giving money guidance and support the attention and importance that it deserves. We want practitioners and their organisations to have quality resources, training, evidence and insights that they can easily access and use to implement positive change in programmes and services.

In 2017 we brought together a consortium and conducted research to gain a better understanding of practitioners’ learning needs and what activity can be undertaken to meet any gaps and enhance their capacity.

Considering the consortium’s recommendations in phase 2 (April 18- August 2019) we will be working closely with the diverse range of organisations in the community to:

  • develop and test a framework that contains the shared competencies needed by practitioners
  • map resources, training and existing standards
  • build a financial capability community to broadcast, share and learn.
