TPR has launched three new e-learning modules in its online trustee toolkit.

These are:

  • Dealing with a DB scheme (solvent employer), including all the implications of any type of buy-out.
  • Dealing with a DB scheme (insolvent employer) - this module is jointly produced with the Pension Protection Fund.
  • Winding up a DC scheme (solvent or insolvent employer).

These modules are quite different from the original toolkit and are designed as ‘just in time’ learning for trustees who find themselves in one of the situations above or who are interested in educating themselves in the event that they do find themselves having to deal with such issues. They are not a training requirement for trustees running an ongoing scheme and do not include any test questions or certificate of completion.
