Wiseradviser courses awarded the Skillsmark

​We are really proud to have been awarded the Skillsmark for Wiseradviser courses in England and Wales.


We know that our training ultimately helps hundreds of thousands of people each year to tackle their debts and manage their money wisely. We conduct our own reviews and evaluations of Wiseradviser courses and receive extremely positive feedback. Obtaining the Skillsmark required an in-depth external review, and we are thrilled - though not surprised - that our courses were so well received.


Times are changing in the world of debt advice. Many traditional advice agencies are finding it hard to meet demand, so time spent learning new skills or updating knowledge on policy can be tricky to justify. But maintaining high standards of advice is paramount to everyone’s aim of helping people in the best way we can. This endorsement should provide great confidence to stretched advisers that time spent learning through Wiseradviser is time well invested.


Another change in the debt advice sector is the emergence of new sources of advice. A number of charitable or community-based organisations, such as food banks, are finding it natural to branch into debt advice. It is our job to reach these new debt advisers and help ensure they can provide the best advice possible. Again, the Skillsmark will provide these organisations with confidence that our free training can make a real difference.


Wiseradviser never stands still – look out for new courses in the coming months on a range of topics!
