What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

Accounting and Taxation Professional Level 7 - ACCA

The gold standard in Accountancy Apprenticeships, this programme enables individuals to become fully qualified in a profession which is globally recognised and respected in areas of accountancy, taxation, finance and business.

ACCA is ideal if you're looking to progress your career and become a chartered accountant, or work in an accountancy, audit or tax firm. ACCA consists of three levels; Applied Knowledge, Applied Skills, and Strategic Professional, and you'll need to complete relevant work experience at some point before you can qualify.

ACCA qualification is made up of three levels:
  • Applied Knowledge helps you understand the role of accounting in the business environment, and develop the practical skills and techniques expected of an accountant working in business. You can complete Applied Knowledge in six to 12 months.
  • Applied Skills encourages you to develop a broad understanding of the role of accounting in business, and how to interpret financial information.
  • By studying Strategic Professional, you'll learn advanced techniques, skills, and the professional ethics required of an accountant or consultant operating at a senior level. Once you've successfully passed you can apply to be a full member of ACCA. Fully qualified ACCA members have abundant job prospects in a variety of industries and countries. In the final stage of ACCA, you'll be working as an assistant (qualified) supervisor or a financial analyst.
    You will also be required to complete an End Point Assessment (EPA), which will include a case study exam and project report.

As part of the apprenticeship you will complete innovative skills and behaviours that are essential to complement the vital technical training. They are designed to support learners in developing essential competencies and embedding their learning within the context of their organisation. Delivered with motivation and engagement at heart, learners can practice these essential competencies with industry peers in a realistic environment.

Training will be provided by attending either face-to-face classroom based lessons or Live Online. An apprenticeship has to be relevant to the job you are undertaking and you must dedicate 20% of your time towards it.
