The Insurance Institute is the number one provider of insurance education in Ireland. We design and deliver education programmes and training to over 17,500 professionals, and equip graduates looking for a job in the industry with the skills they need to succeed.
Insurance is all about protecting customers – individuals, businesses or whole communities – and delivering peace of mind when they need it most. In a rapidly-changing world, we’re constantly faced with new risks. Insurance is continuously evolving to develop policies to cover these types of risks and as a result, there are always new and exciting roles available.
Graduates from all backgrounds can start a career in insurance. Whether you have an analytical mind or a creative streak, opportunities exist from underwriting and claims to IT, HR and marketing – you just need passion and a drive to succeed!
Insurance Practitioner Apprenticeship
A new national insurance apprenticeship programme launched in 2016, which allows students and graduates to get their foot in the door of an insurance organisation as part of a structured three-year programme, earning a salary while also working towards a level 8 degree – the BA (Hons) in Insurance Practice. The programme teaches technical skills and workplace knowledge through online learning and on-the-job training.
Applications for the next entry will open in Spring 2017, with the programme starting in September.
When you work in insurance, you’ll undertake qualifications to make sure you’re always at the top of your game.
An added benefit is that our qualifications can open doors and create exciting opportunities across the globe. With world class, internationally recognised qualifications under their belts, our graduates have gone on to secure careers in the UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the US and across Europe.
