Each year we take on a number of A Level students on AAT training contracts. Your initial two year period of study and work experience will provide exposure to various aspects of accountancy, including auditing, accounts preparation, bookkeeping, personal and corporate tax and business development.
The entry requirements are as follows.
- Minimum of 2 C’s or above at A Level
- Strong GCSE Results
- Relevant A Level subject
- Professional work experience
In addition, you will be enthusiastic and self motivated with a desire to become a professional accountant within a successful growing firm. You should have excellent verbal and numerical skills, along with strong communication skills and be able to work in a team.
Fast Track Qualification Route
If you have high ambitions but are concerned about going to university and the associated tuition and living costs that you will incur and spend many years repaying, you may want to consider the fast track route to full qualification.
You can join the profession to study AAT after taking A levels, and on completion transfer to the ACA programme, achieving full qualification in less than 5 years!
And all that whilst being paid a salary, and having all your tuition fees paid! This really is a great opportunity and a real alternative to taking a degree without having to feel that you have compromised your long term career options.
Specialist Tax Training
If you are already certain that you want to specialise in taxation, you can join the profession by studying for the Chartered Institute of Tax examinations, commencing either with ATT or CTA depending on the level of general education you have attained. It is likely that your role will be based in our central tax team, providing you with the opportunity to support your course of study with practical, hands on experience of personal and corporate tax.
