IFW Training Programme Accreditation
To be accredited by the IFW would indicate that your financial coaching programme/s are in synch with the principles and practices of financial wellbeing. The IFW exists to provide a learning and development environment for like-minded people. We are not for profit and want to be the place that people go to when they want to find the very best in financial planning and coaching.
The IFW is able to accredit both internal and external (client) training programmes. We use an accreditation process (from the National College of Financial Services) which provides affordable external validity for courses offered by members.
The outcome of this process will be to provide our members with the confidence that any training programmes we accredit a) are professional and deliver what is promised, and b) will help them to achieve the aims of the IFW. All accredited programmes will be added to our learning centre and promoted to our members.
Criteria for IFW Accreditation
In order for the programme to prove that it embodies the principles of the Initiative for Financial Wellbeing it must show that it delivers upon at least one of the following:
- Educates financial planners, advisers and coaches so that they can improve their client’s financial wellbeing by helping them become happier, not just wealthier
- Explores and promotes the relationship between money and wellbeing
- Provides a relevant resource for the financial services community
- Reinforces the influence on financial education to focus on wellbeing
