Over the coming year we are expecting to see Professional Trustees being required to expand their knowledge and expertise in a range of areas.
A key area of focus is environmental, social and governance requirements being in place on Professional Trustees of pension schemes. The Association of Professional Pension Trustees (APPT) have announced plans to help support the provision of training materials in respect of this area.
These training materials will help support Professional Trustees and improve the quality of services they provide to Pension Schemes. The provision of Trustee services is growing substantially and by having relevant training records provided by the APPT will allow Trustees to keep up to speed for what is expected of them. Due to the growth, there is likely to be new requirements introduced and this training can support the Trustees in providing high quality services.
The training tools are expected to be in the form of short topical videos, and ‘hints and tips’ checklist which will be made available on the APPT member website.
This training will enhance the training resources already available to Trustees whilst also assisting new Trustees.
