Compliance, professional development and training platform GO1 has announced the launch of a scholarship program exclusively tailored to finance brokers.
The GO1 Broker Academy Scholarship Program is part of Westpac’s Broker Academy, which was launched last month.
The program is designed to provide brokers with a scalable online solution with access to a suite of learning pathways, content and courses from across the industry.
The program also seeks to cover everything from compliance, sales and marketing, through to contract law negotiation and hard and soft skills training.
In addition to formal Continuing Professional Development (CPD) with attainable points accepted by the key industry bodies, it also includes access to Certificate IV modules and tertiary education through a diploma of financial services.
GO1 has partnered with the Institute of Strategic Management, in conjunction with the Commercial & Asset Finance Brokers Association of Australia (CAFBA) to deliver the courses.
“The GO1 Broker Academy Scholarship Program is our bid to help brokers overcome the challenges they face in the commercial and asset finance industry, and presents an opportunity for them to upskill,” GO1 co-founder Vu Tran said.
“We’ve partnered with the best minds in the industry in the Institute of Strategic Management and CAFBA to ensure that the scholarship program and courses are relevant, timely and has a positive impact for brokers.
“This is a unique and much-needed program for the broker community, and we thank our partners, especially the Westpac Group, for joining us on this journey.”
