Which R0s are being supported?
- R01 Financial services, regulation, and ethics
- R02 Investment and risk
- R03 Personal taxation
- R04 Pensions and retirement planning
How is this support being provided?
Support is being provided via two-day workshops – the initial day is on a Friday, the second on a Monday. This avoids the need to take two days off in a row in the same week. It also helps candidates to absorb the first day’s knowledge over a WE, before topping this up with day two’s instalment.
What do BTS cover on the workshops?
These days are designed as revision workshops. BTS concentrate on the key learning outcomes and areas that are more essential for an exam pass. As a result, they are ideal for candidates towards the end of their learner journey, where the next step is an exam sitting. The days can, however, also be used by candidates at the start of their R0 study plan, to ‘kick start’ their learning journey.
They do not cover all the learning outcomes in the selected R0s, as that would be an impossibility in the time available. They are billed as revision days ideally not ‘start from scratch and cover everything required’ workshops.
How often are the workshops being run?
The workshops are being offered four times a year, so one set of R01/2/3 and 4 is available per quarter. Places are limited and offered on a first come first served basis.
Where can I see what is available?
The workshops can be viewed on the BTS events calendar and on the Leicester and Nottingham PFS forthcoming events pages.
How do I book onto a workshop?
Workshop places are secured by following the links on the BTS events calendar. This will take candidates to the relevant booking page. Payment will be taken by the Institutes at time of booking. This payment is refundable in extenuating circumstances.
