During 2010 the CIPP worked in collaboration with others to develop our new pension’s qualification, which was initially aimed at the Local Government Pension Scheme, but now also includes from the Spring 2012 in take the NHS Pensions Scheme, developments will continue during 2012 and beyond which will see the course develop still further to include additional sectors.
The results of the collaboration saw CIPP launch in the autumn of 2010 the:
Foundation Degree in Pensions Administration and Management
Aimed at public sector pension professionals, this two year Foundation Degree in Pensions Administration and Management was developed by the CIPP under the auspices of Leeds City College and is validated by Leeds Metropolitan University.
The Foundation Degree in Pensions Administration and Management will be awarded after two years study, and assessments will be by either tutor marked assignments or examination.
Year one aims to address the needs of employees wanting to gain a good understanding of the workings of the Local Government Pension Scheme (“LGPS”) and from the spring of 2012 NHS (other sectors are under review) and provides a good introduction for relatively inexperienced administrators or those who have not been exposed to the breadth of the work of the pensions team.
