CISI Educational Trust
The CISI originally created the Educational Trust to broaden the scope of its scholarship awards and sponsor a number of financial subjects within its accredited Centres of Excellence. In March 2011, a significant decision was made by the CISI Board to allocate additional funds to the trust on a yearly basis and a proposal was made to the trustees to further expand the remit of the Educational Trust across the education spectrum.
In June 2011 the Trustees agreed to:
- an expansion of the number of trustees
- the establishment of a nominations committee, chaired by the CISI corporate trustee
- a three year budget of expenditure to include further scholarship awards and prizes; comprehensive teacher training, including the cost of travel and accommodation and the sponsorship of a teaching post in another region
In August 2012, as a result of stakeholder feedback, the trust further broadened its support of CISI educational initiatives by employing a Work Experience Placement Manager. This role will assist in coordinating work experience placement opportunities for schools and colleges delivering the Certificate for Introduction to Securities & Investment, building relationships between firms and educational providers across the country.
The trustees will meet three times a year to carry out its duties and to agree further expenditure in future years.
