Workplace Savings Training

Workplace Savings Training - Financial Services Council


The FSC Workplace Savings Committee have developed the first four videos in a series of training modules for those working in or with Workplace Savings Schemes. The videos are designed to provide a valuable free resource to those wanting a refresher or those looking to enter the workplace savings sector. 

New training modules are being planned and recorded. Please contact us if you have a specialised topic that you think should be featured, would like to participate in hosting a training module or want to be added to the mailing list so that you are updated when new modules are added online.

The training modules are also available via the FSC YouTube channel.
