ActEd runs in-house induction courses in September and October each year to give new actuarial students a flying start to the early subjects, as well as introducing and developing the basic actuarial skills that new students will use in the office.
For employers with a larger number of new actuarial students, we run in-house induction courses. These can be tailored more closely to the needs of an individual employer and can be incorporated into the employer’s current induction programme. For example, sessions on the subject material can be interspersed with other internal training sessions.
Please ring Fiona Hayden at ActEd on 01235 550005 if you would like to discuss in-house induction courses in more detail.
The course covers the following areas:Assumed knowledge (1) – pure mathematics
In addition, there will be an introductory session covering the exam system, how much study is needed, exam preparation and study hints.
The course will finish with a short mock exam on the last afternoon of the course, containing a wide range of exam-style questions. The mock exam will emphasise the importance of understanding, accuracy and speed, and will prevent students from developing any complacency in their approach to their actuarial studies.
Employers sending students on this course will receive feedback on their students’ performance during the three days and an interpretation of the marks obtained in the mock exam.
Students who have attended ActEd induction courses in the past have found that they went away with the foundations of their knowledge of the early subjects firmly laid, and with a clear idea of how their studying pattern needed to develop over the forthcoming year.
We are specialist actuarial educators and we are producing a wide range of affordable, online study resources to prepare students studying for the Certified Actuarial Analyst (CAA) exams offered by CAA Global.Find Out More
