School leaver opportunities

If you are focused on building a career in accountancy but do not want a university education, we offer the opportunity to gain a professional qualification and earn a salary at the same time as gaining relevant work experience for your CV.

The opportunities

Our non-graduate training programmes are designed to offer ambitious A level (or equivalent) students the opportunity to qualify and build a career in accountancy. You will benefit from both on-the-job training and classroom based study, as well as learning from the established accountants all around you.

We offer two qualifications; the ICAEW Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) and the AAT Accounting qualification, which allow you to complete your ACA or ACCA professional qualification without the need for a university degree.

This programme lasts two years during which you will work towards your ICAEW Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB) certificate. Upon successful completion you will then have the opportunity to complete the ACA professional qualification.

AAT programme

This programme is expected to last up to four years during which you will work towards your AAT qualification. Upon successful completion you will then have the opportunity to complete the ACCA professional qualification.

The training

Under both programmes, you will be given early responsibility from day one and can expect exposure to clients incorporating a wide diversity of work and various challenges that will help you develop the skills you need to succeed as an accountant.

We’ll support you in every way we can with high-quality training focusing on both technical areas and soft skills, including effective communication, presentation and negotiation skills. We will assign you a personal mentor who will support you where necessary and ensure you are happy.
