FIS will today (1 November) launch its 2019 sector-wide digital Training Needs Analysis (TNA).

We urge all FIS members to complete the TNA and submit by 21 February 2019. Submissions will provide evidence for the whitepaper on the overall skills need and workforce sustainability of our sector. All those completing the TNA will automatically receive a digital copy.

The data obtained will allow us to make year-on-year comparisons from three years of TNA results. This sector engagement process will continue up to 2020.

Led by FIS Sector Skills Engagement Manager Amanda Scott, the result allows us to accurately forecast the demand needs for skills and technical qualifications required to meet your contractual obligations over the next financial year. “To ensure we meet our membership’s reported demand and engage our supply chain of approved training providers and partners to fill demand, your response is critical.”

Amanda and the skills team will be engaging with all members, offering advice and completion support. Email
