AFA partners with Kaplan

The Association of Financial Advisers (AFA) has appointed Kaplan as its principal education partner.

AFA head of campus Nick Hakes said the appointment was the result of a review of the organisation’s education strategy and “a thorough tender process”.

“We are excited to partner with Kaplan Professional as they share a common education philosophy, delivering a blend of vocational and higher education with practical experience and mentoring,” he said.

“By increasing education standards, we are ultimately looking to encourage more consumers to seek financial advice,” said Mr Hakes.

Kaplan Professional general manager Brian Knight said the partnership would create a “seamless pathway for advisers from diploma level, to bachelor degree, AFA accreditation and on to Masters”.
