Our expectation is that all Apprentices should already possess English and Maths to GCSE grade C / 4 or equivalent. However, we will consider applicants without these grades subject to an initial assessment with one of the Apprenticeship Team.

You’ll learn to apply a transparent and objective manner in all actions and interactions to ensure that you meet the ethical requirements of the profession. As well as ensuring fully competency as an Accounts/Finance Assistant, the Apprenticeship will provide you with the foundation for progression into a number of career paths.

Typical course duration: 12 months & 1-3 months End Point Assessment period.

Apprentices can be taught via classroom delivery, work-based learning/assessment, and vocational “on and off the job training”. This is always dependent on the course, the preferences of the business, and the wishes of the learner.
