An Accounts or Finance Assistant’s work could include basic bookkeeping activities, working with sales and purchase ledgers, running calculations to ensure that records and payments are correct, recording of cash and data entry. An Accounts or Finance Assistant can work in almost any sector.

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.

The tutors were really supportive and it was all thanks to them that I have achieved what I have. I’ve also made loads of great friends and really enjoyed my time at the college.

My experience at the college was enjoyable and productive, with thoroughly helpful people surrounding you, an excellent experience. I wasn’t expecting it to be as good as it was, with the work shop time and experience I had, it was a great two years preparing me for the next stage.
