As part of Scottish Apprentice Week, the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) are delighted to partner on this event, hosted at ACCA’s Glasgow office, to introduce employers to the new, innovative Master of Accountancy (MAcc) Graduate Apprenticeship.

Designed to align with ACCA requirements, this fully-funded qualification helps employers recruit new talent and upskill existing staff identified as integral to the future of the business. GAs are open to employers from the private, public and third sector, and this event will provide an opportunity to meet ACCA and GCU professional & academic leads, as well as connect with employers and students already engaged in the MAcc programme.
