To achieve this, the FSCA has developed a structured internship programme designed to produce a pipeline of competent new entrants in the labour market, while also assisting the FSCA in delivering on its mandate to transform the integrity of financial markets, protect financial customers by promoting fair treatment by financial institutions, and provide financial education while maintaining financial stability.

The roll-out plan of the internship programme involves identifying and recommending suitable candidates who will have the opportunity to learn under the supervision of a dedicated mentor. Interns will be assigned to a specific division within the FSCA based on their qualifications and career aspirations. During the one-year internship programme, interns will be exposed to various competency-based training to enhance their skills and knowledge in their respective areas of specialization.
