Full Course Description

In order to encourage us all to save for our old age a system of Automatic Enrolment (Auto Enrolment for short) has been introduced by the Government. This imposes many duties on companies to set up suitable schemes and automatically enrol eligible members from a staging date. The rules are complex and there are severe penalties for non-compliance so all employers and advisors need to be aware of these rules.

The course will examine what Auto Enrolment is and why planning is crucial, the staging dates and basic structure of the regime. It will then explore the obligations of the employer, categorising employees and managing record keeping. Then it looks at the pension schemes that can be used and how this affects existing pension arrangements. The final section of the course covers an update on pension scheme accounting in respect of amendments to the SORP.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
