This accountancy apprenticeship is for those wanting to train on the job and to study advanced accounting to obtain an internationally recognised professional accounting qualification.
You already have an existing Level 3 qualification in accounting and want to develop more complex accounting knowledge, gain more specialist skills in related areas such as tax.
During this qualification, you will learn advanced accounting skills e.g. financial statements for limited companies, complex management accounting tasks, management skills and specialist learning areas.
Individuals in the role of a Professional Accounting Technician will have responsibility for creating, and / or verifying and reviewing accurate and timely financial information within the organisation in which they are employed or on behalf of another organisation. This will be performed in order to meet relevant ethical, professional and legal standards and will utilise the individual’s knowledge of the business systems and processes, as well as standard accounting and tax practices. This role may exist in an accounting practice, a professional services company, HMRC or the accounting function of a business or other organisation.
An apprenticeship is a great way to gain a qualification and earn money at the same time. At the end of the course, you will have a nationally recognised qualification.
We also offer this course off-site at St Mellion
