  • The Kaplan King: From AAT to CIMA, and fully Chartered

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Nov 28, 2018

    Tom Kelly is 24 years old, a Project Accountant and has fully Chartered status.

    He started out as an AAT apprentice with Kaplan, but the last two years have seen him progress to the CIMA qualification and move on in his career.

    When you tell them you have letters after your name, it definitely opens doors. 

    The Kaplan King

    Sticking with Kaplan throughout his accountancy voyage, Tom discovered that our teaching methods suited his approach to learning.

    The continuity provided a level of comfort and consistency that enabled him to flourish “Kaplan provided excellent training throughout and their teaching styles suited me.”

    The future after AAT

    As an Accounting Technician, there are a range of fulfilling career routes available. You could even be eligible for exemptions from some higher learning units, meaning you can gain higher qualifications sooner than you might think and boost your earning potential.

    Our studies show

    That one third of all AAT students go on to chartered status.  

    Like Tom, you may opt to study as an apprentice, rather than take the university route. With AAT you don’t need any previous experience or qualifications to start, just a willingness to learn!

    This attitude has taken Tom all the way to being CIMA qualified.

  • Apprenticeships: What we've learned so far and what's in store

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Oct 22, 2018

    2018 has been another year of growth and change with Apprenticeships, with the launch of even more new standards (such as the new L4 Internal Audit Apprenticeship), increasing number of Apprentices going through the End Point Assessment (EPA) and an ongoing review of assessment plans and funding bands.

    It's an exciting time for employers looking to maximise Apprenticeships opportunities, but it can be a confusing sector to fully appreciate what is available and how they can work best for your organisation.

    To help you make sense of where we are now, and what’s to come, please join Kaplan and our panel of experts including ACCA, CICM, AAT, NOCN, CIMA and ICAEW for a breakfast event on Tuesday 4th December at 8:30 am at The Principal, Manchester.

    In this interactive and informative session, we will cover:

    • An overview of the current Apprenticeship landscape and changes due in 2019

    • A briefing of the range of standards available

    • The advantages and disadvantages of converting existing training into Apprenticeship standards including the treatment of graduates and school leavers

    • Using Apprenticeships to aid workforce planning post BREXIT

    • Lessons learned from End Point Assessments carried out so far

    • A discussion on the role Apprenticeships can play in achieving diversity in the sector

    We do hope you can join us. Places are limited, so book early to avoid disappointment.

  • Everything you wanted to know about OnDemand - Q&A

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Sep 13, 2018
    What study method works best for you? Have you considered OnDemand?

    OnDemand allows you to study when and where you want, using bite-sized, tutor-led online resources. These are designed to keep you motivated and the integrated practice questions make sure you stay on track.

    It was first launched for CIMA in September 2016, followed by AAT in May 2017, and has now been released for ACCA students.

    With leading pass rates (i.e. 88% for CIMA) it’s helping more students progress quicker and qualify faster.

    Here our award winning tutor talks about the study method and how it works in practice. 
  • Setting up and approving cohorts on The Apprenticeship Service

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Sep 06, 2018
    Are you a levy paying employer? Are your Apprentice's studying with Kaplan?

    For Kaplan to be able to draw down Apprenticeship funds from your levy pot,  there are a few simple steps that you need to take through your "The Apprenticeship Service" ("TAS") account. This will also allow you to track your Apprentice's draw down and help us provide a seamless start to their programme 

     As the 'sponsoring employer' you need to log in, assign a training provider, allocate a cohort and approve the cohort. You may need to do this regularly dependent on your intake of Apprentices.

    We've put together two short videos to demonstrate what you need to do.

  • The Kaplan Siblings - an AAT family trait

    by Lewis Charlesworth | Aug 30, 2018

    Meet the Qureshi siblings, or as we like to call them: The Kaplan Siblings.

    Tehreen, Bisma and Sahir are a close family. They get on well and live together, but there's an extra common thread: they all studied AAT with Kaplan.  

    At 25, 22 and 20 each has followed a similar path, and helped each other along the way. The eldest, Tehreen, takes credit for shaping her younger siblings’ careers "Yeah, I like to think they followed me".

    Watch the video for their unique story.
