Fast Track into Financial Services relaunches online

22 October 2020: Following several months of disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fast Track into Financial Services course will be delivered by the City of Glasgow and Edinburgh Colleges from next month.

Commencing 30 November, HNC/HND/Degree-level graduates looking to get a start in Scotland’s growing financial services sector can take advantage of Fast Track, a funded six-week work-readiness course. 

The programme is co-designed and co-delivered with Scottish Financial Enterprise members - representing an agile response to the industry’s recruitment needs and provides participants a good foundation to secure future employment. 

Fast Track is aligned to DWP's sector-based work academy approach - meaning that customers in receipt of benefit can participate in courses up to six weeks whilst still retaining their benefit entitlement.

The programme is open to HNC/HND/Degree graduates, who may:

  • be unemployed or under-employed needing more experience and support to secure a role in the financial services industry
  • be affected by redundancy
  • have existing customer services and operational skills - such as tourism, travel, food retail or hospitality
