The FSP works closely with the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) in the South East and SEEDA, the Regional Development Agency, to ensure that public funds for skills development are directed to the needs of financial services employers in the region. We work with the National Skills Academy for the financial services to ensure learning provision matches employers' needs.
