Accountancy

Are you looking to grow your workforce whilst supporting an individual to achieve a nationally recognised AAT qualification? Or possibly have an existing employee that you would like to invest in and up-skill?

Not only do Apprenticeships offer people the chance to kick-start a fulfilling career, there are a wealth of benefits for businesses. Offering an apprenticeship to new or existing staff gives businesses the chance to play an active role in moulding their future workforce and creating the future skills that they need to help their businesses grow. Providing these opportunities builds strong employee loyalty as well as maintaining highly skilled staff.

Our Advanced level Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship  covers accounting disciplines including financial processes, advanced bookkeeping, final accounts and ethical practices for accountants.

Our  Higher Level Professional Accountant Apprenticeship  covers higher accounting tasks including drafting financial statements, managing budgets and evaluating financial performance, as well as optional specialist units including business tax, personal tax, external auditing, credit management, and cash and treasury management.

The apprentice will be required to produce a portfolio of evidence and undertake a Synoptic end point Assessment.
