As an organisation, EMA firmly believes that the most effective training for apprentices is through face to face, tutor led delivery, supplemented by mentoring in their place of work. This blended approach helps to develop not just the apprentice’s technical skills, but also softer skills around communication, confidence and relationship building.

Whilst having a strong focus on entry level apprentices aged 16-24, EMA readily supports more mature candidates who are perhaps pursuing a career change or looking to upskill through vocational training.

In addition to apprenticeship provision, EMA also offer commercial training programmes in Accountancy and IT, in addition to being an official AAT exam centre for external assessments.
