Accountancy Apprenticeships Vs University: Any Questions

27 March 2018 6:30-7:30pm

First Intuition are holding an information evening for parents and students (Years 11-13). The aim of the evening is to find out about the different routes of starting a career in business via an accounting qualification.

One route is via an apprenticeship in accounting. This is a great alternative to going to University.  An apprenticeship lets you learn on the job, develop knowledge and skills, gain an AAT accounting qualification and earn money – all at the same time

We will explain the different routes including the what, why, who and how of apprenticeships. One of our employers, Moore Stephens will be attending with two of their students. They will be sharing their journey to qualifying as an accountant. Please see the flyer for more details.
