For a quick overview of the benefits, take a look at our ACCA Apprenticeship infographic (.png format, 69 KB).
ACCA is a globally respected name that future employers take seriously and an apprenticeship provides real world work experience to make you stand out amongst your peers.
Every organisation deals with finance-related issues and every organisation needs people who are trained to use financial expertise to shape business strategy and inform decisions about investment and growth.
An ACCA Apprenticeship will give you not only technical skills but also the soft skills that are important in any role, in any industry.
An apprenticeship means getting paid to learn new skills while also gaining work experience. A trainee accountant salary starts from around £15,000 and can rise quickly as you progress through your career.
Our qualifications are recognised in more than 180 countries, so you'll have job opportunities all over the world.
If you want a career that can take you abroad, our accounting apprenticeships are right for you.
You'll gain valuable skills from your apprenticeship on its own but if you want to take your finance career to another level, we've got options for that too.
Your world-class training also includes options to go on to achieve:
Work, study, live.
As an apprentice, you’ll have time and money to enjoy life outside of work because you’ll be earning a salary while you work towards your diploma or qualification.
You’ll develop a wide range of valuable business, finance and accounting skills that extend beyond just reading the numbers. The skills you’ll gain will be useful in every type of role, across all sectors, and will be vital if you want to start your own business. Our qualification has been updated to teach and develop the skills that modern finance teams need so you can be sure you’ll be workplace-ready upon completion.
With support, mentoring and a minimum of 12 months’ commitment, this is your chance to focus on development.
Employers are investing in you and your future so you can be reassured that you’ll have a stable job through your entire apprenticeship.
Unlike university, your apprenticeship will cost you and your family nothing.
You won’t have to worry about student loan repayments so you can start your finance career debt-free.
You’ll start working as you study so you’ll be developing your career ahead of your peers at university. With an apprenticeship, you don’t have to wait three years to start your career.
You’ll also have access to an online network of fellow students, and if you choose to continue studying with us, we can also help you with future career opportunities, both at home and abroad.
