There's no time like the present to start thinking about the future. That's why many teachers who are still some way off retirement want to learn more about pension planning and related issues so that they are better prepared.
The in-school seminar typically lasts for 2-3 hours and is usually run on an inset day or other appropriate day to minimise disruption of teaching time. The in-school seminar is not intended as a replacement for the one-day course, but instead is aimed at a mixed career-stage delegation, with a focus primarily on financial issues.
The in-school seminar presents delegates with factual information on the State Pension and the Teachers' Pension Scheme. Additionally, the seminar provides generic information on the issues most relevant to teachers including AVC's & ARB's (or ARP's), Money Management and Budgeting, Investing for Growth / Income, ensuring Financial Security up to and during retirement and Private Medical Insurance.
The seminars not only bring about a clearer understanding of the various pension and investment options available to teachers but can also show how an individual can save a considerable amount of money by re-assessing their own financial situation. Further details and arrangements regarding these courses are available from the TRA Head Office 0345 644 2585.
