Accounting And Taxation Professional Apprenticeship Level 7.
If you're looking to develop your accountancy skills to lead finance departments or provide management accounting consultancy, CIMA is your ticket. CIMA is split into Certificate, a standalone 'beginner' qualification, and Professional, which is split into three levels: Operational, Management, and Strategic.
What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?
- The Certificate in Business Accounting is your starting point if you're new to accountancy. You'll learn the fundamentals of business economics, financial accounting, management accounting, and ethical considerations of commercial activity.
- Operational teaches you about organisational management, costs and analysis used in production, and financial reporting and taxation.
- Management equips you with the skills to perform advanced management accounting and advanced financial reporting tasks.
- Strategic develops your leadership and strategic management abilities, and teaches you about risk management and financial strategy.
Next steps would be Finance Business Partner and the level above this would be Finance Manager upon successful completion of the CIMA qualification and an appropriate vacancy being available. There is salary progression following the completion of each CIMA Level.
