NAPF has an unrivalled reputation for high quality pensions training. The NAPF Academy brings all our education and training activities under one banner, providing you with education and professional development opportunities covering a wide range of topics and disciplines.
For new trustees and anyone new to pensions there are introductory courses, and for those with a little more experience, trustee learning zones at our major conferences and specialist training like our Employer Covenant course. During 2015 we will be adding more learning opportunities for those who would like to develop their leadership skills or focus on specific areas of pension practice.
An exciting new initiative for the NAPF Academy is the Claritas Investment Certificate, offered by CFA Institute, a global community of investment professionals working to build an investment industry where investors interests come first, financial markets function at their best and economies grow.

Leadership and professional development
During 2015 we will be teaming up with a number of education providers to offer training activities which concentrate on developing the leadership, decision-making, influencing and negotiating skills of those who operate within the pensions industry.
Frequently pensions practitioners focus personal development strategies on the technical aspects of pensions and have little time to develop their skills in other areas. While the pensions practitioner faculty will offer pensions 'technical' training we will also be working with education providers operating in sister disciplines to offer wider training opportunities.
