ABSTRACT
In this article, the author reflects on the challenges for the Great Britain Financial Services Authority (FSA) in allowing work-based assessments as an alternative to examinations. He suggests that a work-based assessment evaluating the on-the-job-performance of adviser should not be seen as easy back-door route to level 4 qualification. Moreover, he stresses that in FSA's work on the Responsible Debt Relief (RDR), it appears to show a lack of concern on the drop in adviser numbers.
