A career in finance and accountancy could start with an Apprenticeship
There aren’t many careers as diverse as accountancy: not only can you train in business, practice or banking, but once qualified accountants are found working in high level jobs all over the world.
Accountants are financial specialists at the heart of all areas of business. They work across various specialisations, including consulting, corporate finance and forensic accounting.
Developing skills and a career at the same time
We have access to government funding to deliver AAT Apprenticeships at Levels 2 and 3.
Gaining an accountancy qualification will stand you in good stead for the future as accountants are in demand in a variety of sectors and organisations. Most employers will fund you through your studies.
You could work in business or finance, the public sector, the charity sector or public practice (those who work in public practice offer accountancy services to clients). You could choose to work for anyone from a large international accountancy firm to a small local business. And you can work in general practice or specialise in areas such as:
Auditing; Tax; Corporate finance, Business recovery and insolvency; forensic accounting; and Analysis.
