Apprenticeships CeFS is an Applied General qualification that is primarily suited to the development of a solid foundation in personal finance that underpins employment in any field of endeavour; this foundation is across a wider range of opportunities than would be found within a single apprenticeship framework. Preparation for employment This qualification is not a professional qualification. It develops knowledge and understanding of the financial services sector and enhances skills that are valued within that sector and others, although itdoes not qualify students for direct entry to a particular occupational role. Students will be in a position to make informed choices, whether to pursue a career within the financial services sector immediately or after further study, or whether to apply the financial skills that they have developed to other careers or study options. For students seeking to continue in education, CeFS provides a foundation for further study in business and finance-related disciplines, as well as a wide range of other commercial or not-for profit sectors. For students who choose to move straight into employment, CeFS may support access to employment in areas such as in insurance, banking, and office administration, or in the voluntary sector such as with Citizens Advice.
