  • Mental Fitness for the Long Term

    by Katy Thomason-Stewart | Jul 22, 2021

    In our recent Mental Fitness webinar series, we share practical guidance on how best to maintain your health. Kaplan knows it is important for our learners to be mentally fit and to feel confident, especially as we look to return to life outside of the lockdown.

    To support awareness and understanding we created a series of webinars, sharing practical guidance and discussing key topics to help you to adapt and strengthen your own mental fitness.

    Joined by expert mental health speaker, Ross McWilliam of Mindset Pro, we cover the transition from working from home, foundations for long term mental fitness, and how to develop your emotional confidence.

    This three part series aimed to help us prepare for both short and long term challenges, whilst gaining healthy habits to aid in strengthening overall mental fitness.

    Key topics

    Episode 1: Mental fitness now: how to adapt to the transition from WFH to hybrid or office working.

    Covering:

    • How stress can both help and hinder our performance
    • The wide variation of COVID responses and their validity
    • Behaviour in the workplace: listen to understand rather than listening to interrupt

    Episode 2: Mental fitness for the long term: foundations to build upon

    Covering:

    • The five pillars of well-being
    • How to avoid reaching burn-out
    • Employing proactive coping strategies

    Episode 3: Gaining emotional confidence: overcoming Imposter Syndrome and how to maximise performance

    Covering:

    • Recognising and managing Imposter Syndrome
    • How to maintain self-esteem and confidence
    • How mental fitness can help you to progress in your professional and personal lives

    Interested in finding out more?

    After the initial three seminars were so well received, with a 97% score being given for speaker satisfaction, we're running six more webinars. From September we will be running one a month covering relevant and helpful topics to support your mental fitness.

    The seminars were useful for confidence in the workplace after a challenging year. Lots of techniques to build on and share.

  • When to take the postponed CFA December 2020 exam

    by Kieron McDonnell | Oct 22, 2020

    CFA® Institute announced the cancellation of the London test centre for the December 2020 exam due to local COVID-19 requirements and regulations.

    Here’s what you need to know about the December 2020 CFA exam cancellations:

    • If your exam has been cancelled, you can register for any 2021 exam date (you cannot register for another location in December).
    • If you have been impacted by both a June and December CFA exam cancellation, you qualify for a refund from CFA Institute. You must submit your refund request to them between 7th and 21st December 2020.
    • If you currently use Schweser’s 2020 CFA online study materials, we have already extended your access until 15th June 2021 as part of our candidate support program.

    We’ve created a video to help you to understand the changes, your study pathway choices and extra study support provided.

    Alternatively, if you're short on time, you can find out which sittings you can take when by looking at this handy infographic produced by the CFA Institute.

    If you’re currently studying with another prep provider, we’re delighted to give you access to a series of free masterclasses to keep you on track.

    If you have any questions, you can drop us an email at citybookings@kaplan.co.uk.
