Trailblazer Apprenticeships

How ICA is involved with the development of trailblazer standards in compliance

ICA has worked with standards developers to construct the trailblazer apprenticeships for compliance/risk officers. Further work has been conducted separately with ICA to develop the assessment tools for these apprenticeships. ICA’s contribution ensures that it is the cutting-edge organisation for delivery of end-point assessments.


What is an end-point assessment?

An end-point assessment is the final assessment that enables an apprentice to demonstrate that they are fully competent and have successfully completed their apprenticeship programme.


Experienced assessors

ICA provides assessors who are fellows of the ICA, thought leaders and expert practitioners in the full range of compliance disciplines within financial services environments. Assessors are fully supported by ICA’s dedicated assessment team who successfully manage and administer thousands of qualifications.
