LGPS National Knowledge Assessment
04 Feb 2020
Assessment coming soon
Following the success of the first ever LGPS National Confidence Assessment (NCA), we’re proud to launch the first ever National Knowledge Assessment (NKA). This assessment of Pension Committee (PC) and Pension Board (PB) members will give LGPS funds a unique insight into the knowledge levels of their key decision-makers.
Given the recommendations on required knowledge for both PCs and PBs in the SAB Good Governance Report, and increasing scrutiny from TPR, now is the perfect time to complete such an assessment.
What are the benefits for you?
By participating in the assessment, your Fund will receive:
- Your own results report
- Our analysis and suggested next steps
- Your benchmarked position against other LGPS funds
- A recommended training plan tailored for your PC and PB
This assessment will provide key evidence and information to all participating LGPS funds on the management of their fund.
Once we've collated the results, we’ll also share a National Report with commentary and analysis on the current LGPS PC and PB landscape.
When will this happen and how long will the assessment take?
The assessment will launch in March and all LGPS funds will be invited to participate. Completion of the survey will take 15 - 20 minutes for each PC or PB member and will be an important step in helping you understand where to focus future training requirements for your fund, and the LGPS as a whole.
We hope you take part in this assessment to help us gain a complete picture of LGPS PC and PB knowledge in 2020.
If you have any questions or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
