Our Finance Higher Apprenticeship is designed as an entry level role into the Accountancy arena; you will study towards your CIMA qualification whilst doing a real job and earning a competitive salary from day one.

On our Level 4 Finance Apprenticeship, you'll complete the CIMA Diploma in Business Accounting over a two year period. This will be studied alongside the relevant skills and behaviours to be successful in your role. To complement your studies, the Apprenticeship has been designed to expose you to a variety of Finance roles. Each role will provide you with the opportunity to develop your finance and business acumen skills as well as growing your soft skills.

If you demonstrate the aspiration and potential to further excel in your field, you'll have the opportunity of progressing onto the Level 7 Professional Accountant Higher Apprenticeship for an additional three year period. We will continue to support you towards your full CIMA qualification.

For the duration of the scheme, you'll work towards your apprenticeship whilst rotating around some core areas within Finance and studying through day release to become a fully qualified Chartered Accountant.

This scheme would particularly suit an individual who is keen to get involved with all aspects of finance, who enjoys problem solving and who is committed to furthering their career through an external study programme.
