Learning & development

As part of your individual development we’ll provide a range of technical and interpersonal skill workshops and learning opportunities to help you realise your potential.

And, working alongside people who are experts in their fields, you’ll build a huge network of contacts across the industry and beyond. We’ll make sure you have the support you need, and monitor your progress to help you develop into a rounded professional with powerful business management skills that are highly regarded and highly transferable.

After all, this is an organisation founded on face-to-face contact. For that reason also, we’ll work hard to develop your ability to communicate, influence and present to a variety of people, right up to your most senior colleagues.

Furthermore, because of the complex nature of our business, we will show you how to manage projects, increase your commercial awareness and make a direct impact on the area in which you’re working.

All of which means you’ll be in an excellent position to take your career to the next level in either the Corporation or the market once you complete your training.

Induction to Lloyd's and the Lloyd's market

Lloyd’s is a complex organisation to understand but the induction programme is designed to demystify and give you the knowledge to hit the ground running. You will gain an umbrella view of who’s who and what’s what and you’ll have the opportunity to meet key people from the different Lloyd’s departments.

Lloyd’s and London Market Introductory Test (LLMIT)

Throughout the graduate programme, you’ll gain insights into how Lloyd’s works. But to help you really understand Lloyd’s we’ve developed the Lloyds and London Market Introductory Test (LLMIT) in partnership with the International Underwriting Association, the London Market Insurance Brokers’ Committee and the Lloyd’s Market Association. The test – which every graduate will take within their first three months of the programme – is an excellent way to develop your awareness and understanding of how business is conducted here, and the roles and responsibilities of all those involved.

Diploma in Insurance

In addition to the LLMIT, you’ll also undertake the Diploma in Insurance, from the Chartered Insurance Institute: an industry-recognised qualification which will help you in your development, regardless of the area you end up in after the 18-month graduate programme. The Diploma will give you a comprehensive overview of insurance – and various related topics – and will prove invaluable in developing your specialist expertise.
