Train and upskill new, and existing, employees

Accountants are important to any business, and those with the right skills are invaluable.

Apprenticeships provide a structured, applied learning route to enable your employees to gain relevant knowledge and learn new skills whilst working in the finance profession. Apprentices can also sit the exams to gain a formal qualification such as AAT, ACCA, and CIMA as part of their apprenticeship.

Our structured apprenticeship programmes include scheduled, tutor-led technical courses studied via Live Online or in the classroom at one of our training locations.

Benefits for business

Not all training is equal

Whilst it’s possible for people to do shorter, specialist skills training, the technical knowledge isn’t always easily transferred and applied back to the workplace to make a noticeable impact.

Apprenticeships deliver the best grounding

They provide 360 degree development for your people to apply their learning directly to real work based projects, to solve challenges for your organisation, for longer.

High demand and short supply

Apprenticeships are a great way to build your own talent, future proofing you, and making your organisation more attractive to future talent.

Refresh and grow your talent

Apprenticeships are a great way to retrain, upskill or encourage diversity in your organisation by recruiting fresh new talent from different backgrounds.
