FBAA offers Mortgage Broking scholarships with Australis College

Australis College has once again partnered with the Finance Brokers Association of Australia Limited given the success of the 2015 Scholarship Program.

The scholarship program is now in its second year, supporting the ongoing upskilling of the finance and mortgage broking industry via the release of another two scholarships to study the FNS50315 Diploma of Finance and Mortgage Broking Management.

The Diploma offers new members to the FBAA an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of finance and mortgage broking, broadening their skill set and helping them to propel their businesses forward.

FBAA’s Peter White said, “The Australis College and FBAA Scholarship program is a great opportunity for brokers to really develop the skills they need to be successful. It opens the door not only to becoming a broker, but also how to run a business and add diversified offerings to that business. I am a strong advocate for continuous professional development and this program definitely helps sets new entrants on the right path.”

“I want students to be able to come through this scholarship and not only be better brokers because their knowledge base will be so much higher, but so they can become our future industry leaders – that is where I see this scholarship program taking us,” added Mr White

The FBAA Scholarship Program opens on 9 May 2016 and will close 29 July with the successful recipients to be announced in August 2016.

Australis College Managing Director Andrew Hetherington said, “The Australis and FBAA Scholarship program is great a way for anyone looking to get a start in mortgage and finance broking. It will provide them with the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to become a successful finance practitioner.”

“This Australis College and FBAA scholarship not only helps finance and mortgage broking become a more accessible career path for the scholarship recipients, but will benefit the industry as a whole,” added Mr Hetherington.
