About our education services
We have over 25 years of experience helping individuals plan for the future.
Our financial and lifestyle education proposition spans an employee’s whole career from apprentices and graduates to beyond retirement.
Our Online Courses draw on our years of experience of providing real world courses under both the Jelf and LaterLife™ brands.
What we offer
Our aim is to help people get in control of their finances and make a plan for the future. It isn’t just about getting them to save into a pension though. We believe that helping employees be better with money is part of an organisation’s responsibility as a caring employer to improve employees’ wellbeing.
Our online courses called "Being Better with Money: Early Career Education" and "Making the Most of your Money: Mid-Career Financial Education" are aimed at those in different stages of their careers. You can read more about it here.
LaterLife Retirement Planning
Our aim is to help individuals plan their retirement so that they can reach retirement with both lifestyle plans and adequate finances to support those plans.
Our online course draws on our real world courses and provides comprehensive coverage of both planning retirement lifestyle and planning finances. By providing optional elements, it provides for both those within a few years of potential retirement and those still with 15 or 20 years to go. You can read more about it here.
