The CII apprenticeship in financial administration is an ideal start to a career in finance, giving you valuable administrative experience.

As the largest deliverer of CII (Chartered Insurance Institute) qualifications in the UK, our support and guidance will help you progress through your qualifications while you gain real on-the-job experience.

The financial administration qualification gives you an ideal starting point, and an in-depth, holistic insight into the finance industry. This qualification will enable you to undertake an administration role in a finance environment, where you will build an essential foundation of financial knowledge and practical skills.


On both level 2 and level 3 qualifications, you will have the choice between these two units:

  • CF1 – UK financial services, regulation & ethics
  • FA1 – Life office administration

However, depending on your role, you may choose to complete other finance-related qualifications when progressing to level 3, such as the CF6 Certificate in Mortgage Advice.

Responsibilities may include

  • Supporting financial advisors with administrative duties
  • Processing new business applications
  • Contributing to reports for financial planning
  • Providing informative and reliable customer service
  • Assessing and making use of financial information to reconcile accounts

Employers you could work with

Other examples of employers within the finance sector include Direct Line, Skipton Building Society, and NFU Mutual. Check out our current vacancies to see what’s available.

What are the entry requirements?

For Level 2 qualifications, many employers are looking for grades C or above in GCSE maths and English. The level 3 will require at least a year’s experience within the industry or a sufficient knowledge of finance.

Support you will gain

Throughout the course, you’ll receive expert support from a tutor with industry experience, with monthly visits to your workplace and support over phone and email. You will also receive phone and email contact from Babington to ensure you are receiving the best support possible.

What can I do afterwards?

The qualifications are designed for those who work or want to work in an administrative role within the finance sector, banks and building societies, however you can also progress into further CII qualifications to progress into roles such as Financial Advisor and Financial Paraplanner.
