Nucleus, the adviser built-wrap, has launched Illuminate learn, an online portal aimed to help adviser firms with their professional and practice development by providing access to expert training materials and flexible personal development courses.
Illuminate learn will complement Illuminate online, Nucleus’s knowledge hub which gives platform users access to daily articles, videos and tools to help build their businesses and share best practice, and Illuminate live, the wrap platform’s twice-yearly seminars that is aimed at supporting advice firm’s practice development.
Illuminate learn is designed to be an advisory firm’s central resource for online learning and support for all staff who are studying for their diploma, chartered qualification or ongoing personal development. It will provide support for a wide range of exams, including the diploma suite (RO1 to R06 & RO8) which is currently available and the Advanced Diploma suite which will follow in the new year. Adviser firm staff will have access to a range of bite-sized content, including detailed study guides, a bank of 6,000 exam questions and online tutor support. Among the contributors supporting the initiative are leading industry experts Brett Davidson of FP Advance and Jon Dunckley from Redmill Advance with future content being supplied by Tony Wickenden of Technical Connection and Carl Richards of The Behavior Gap.
The modules are competitively priced, regularly updated and will be accessible through the Nucleus website.
Commenting on the launch of Illuminate learn, Barry Neilson, business development director at Nucleus, said: ‘For any successful, forward-thinking business nurturing and harnessing talent is crucial to achieving a competitive advantage. An important part of this process is providing staff with access to relevant, high-quality training and development materials, combined with advice and guidance from industry experts.
‘Building on the success of Illuminate online, which has become an important resource for advisers and office staff, we wanted to offer further support to help practices manage their teams’ professional development. All courses are competitively priced and are designed to suit the needs of advisers and others who are managing the pressure of a full time role while studying for exams.’
