Leasing Foundation Launches Education Consultation

Filed Under: Industry News

The Leasing Foundation has launched a consultation process to understand the needs of the leasing and asset finance industry in terms of education. The purpose of the consultation is to start a discussion about education and development in the industry. It is intended to catalyse opinion, start debate and create change.

The consultation paper 'Education for asset finance: new routes to recognition, professionalism and reward' explores a variety of options that can provide routes into leasing and asset finance careers that demystify the industry and open up career options thus ensuring a continual flow of talent to regenerate the industry.

Foundation Director Peter Thomas says: "We need to build an education, training and development framework that recognises the need to make professionalism accessible and visible inside and outside the leasing and asset finance industry and helps to develop and retain the best people in the industry. This paper is the start of a discussion about new and innovative approaches that open up opportunities for the industry – both in the UK, but also across Europe and beyond".

Anyone with an interest in education in the leasing and asset finance industry is invited to respond and the paper can be accessed at

The mission of the Leasing Foundation is to support the leasing and asset finance industry by providing focus and organisation for charitable activities, by performing rigorous, challenging and relevant research in areas that impact the industry and its future, and by seeking opportunities to sustain the industry by developing people in the industry. The Foundation is not a lobbying body or a trade association.
