Member Learning

Your Civil Service Pension is a valuable asset, but how much do you know about it?

Lots of people think they don’t need to consider their pension until retirement age, but it’s important to understand the benefits of the scheme from the outset.  There are different options available such as paying additional contributions or switching schemes. Through our training sessions, which can be delivered via webinar and face to face, we can give you the knowledge to make informed choices.                                             

Our sessions are designed to guide you through all areas of your Civil Service Pension Scheme and other benefits. They will help to demystify the scheme so that you have a clear view of the value of your benefits and how you can take the next steps to plan for your retirement. You can select the course you require from the list below.

If you’d like more information, or to request learning on a date more convenient to you, then please contact us at and we’ll be happy to help.
