CII launches FutureMe, a personalised career development platform

The platform offers interactive tools and online classes focused on career skills, including more than 5,000 videos, 800 e-learning bites and 14 personality assessments. Soft business and IT skills alone have around 300 courses in FutureMe.

Gill White, chief customer officer of the CII, said the platform was conceptualised in response to feedback from professionals wanting more support on how they can meet the career ambitions they have for themselves.

“FutureMe enables professionals to identify where they are in their career today, encourages them to think about where they want to go next, and supports them to take that next step forwards,” White said. “This new content sits alongside existing CPD content, online learning and technical qualifications from the CII, and members will be signposted to relevant content based on personalised skills gaps identified via the Professional Map.”

Aside from online learning, CII also put a prime on assessment and feedback at every step of vying for a job. For instance, the Career Pulse allows professionals to evaluate themselves to see how employable they are and to identify weaknesses they need to work on.

The CV Builder compares a professional’s CW against more than 50 checks, while Interview 360 simulates an interview environment. Both features provide personalised feedback.

To top it off, FutureMe will also outline career opportunities, as well as offering career development advice from career coaches and hiring managers.

“To support this further, the CII’s obard will – in the coming months – use consultation feedback to help inform its next five-year strategy to build on the long and proud history that underpins our Royal Charter to ‘secure and justify the confidence of the public’ in the insurance and personal finance profession,” White said.
