Description:

The Modern Apprenticeship framework for Accountancy says that each apprentice is required to achieve AAT Level 2 or Level 3 SVQ certificate in Accounting.

You will study for AAT qualifications using an AAT Approved Open learning provider. You will be sent study materials, which will include work packs, assessments and CDs. In addition, you must pass exams, which provide the underpinning knowledge (theory) of the job. As this is an open learning qualification there is no college attendance, but we may require you to attend group sessions from time to time - to support your progress with AAT studies.

Duration:

It will usually take 2 years to complete Level 2 and a further 2 years to complete Level 3.

Qualifications you will acquire:

• Modern Apprenticeship in Accounting consisting of:
• Level 2 Certificate in Accounting (Certificate stage of AAT), Core skills, Professional Ethics unit 
• Level 3 Diploma in Accounting (Diploma stage of AAT), Core Skills

Personal qualities, skills and qualifications:

We will pass on applications to companies and organisations who have told us they want to employ a modern apprentice in Accountancy. Employers make their own recruitment decisions, but generally we find they require :
• A mature outlook and willingness to work as part of a team
• Highers in relevant subjects such as English, Accounts and preferably an IT based qualification are desirable. National 5s or General/Credit Standard Grades are essential
• As this qualification is delivered by Open Learning, it is extremely important that candidates should be organised, motivated and capable of working on their own initiative.
