Apprenticeships are all about learning on the job. You’ll spend most of your week with your employer learning about accountancy as you work, and come to college from time to time. You will do a number of qualifications including the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Foundation qualification. You will spend either one day or two evenings per week at college.

You will cover a number of units which could include: making records of payments, working with computers, preparing ledger balances and supplying management information.
