Enabling business success through effective competence management
Understanding that key roles in regulated entities are subject to the FCA’s Training and Competence (T&C) rules is well established practice. T&C has been an integral part of financial services for decades and a regulatory requirement since the 1990’s.
How firms implement and manage T&C varies from firm to firm. However, all T&C regimes have the same criteria; regular performance reviews, ‘on the job’ observations, programmes of continuing professional development (CPD) and robust record keeping supported by effective monitoring and transparency throughout the business.
New regulatory requirements such as MIFID II and SM&CR have further strengthened the need for evidencing competence. So, far from being outdated and overtaken by newer directives, T&C is today more relevant than ever.
