  • Bookkeeping transactions
  • Bookkeeping controls
  • Advanced bookkeeping
  • Final accounts preparation

  • Spreadsheets for accounting

We have partnered with Mindful Education to deliver this apprenticeship through our Online and On Campus model.

Online lessons can be accessed at any time, using a mobile, tablet or desktop – meaning apprentices can fit their study around work commitments, minimizing disruption in the workplace.

On campus, apprentices benefit from face-to-face classes at College with an experienced tutor. A combination of classroom-based lessons, group exercises and discussion encourage apprentices to apply theory to real-life workplace situations.

This modern, flexible approach to apprenticeship training empowers learners, minimises disruption to employers, and delivers tangible results in the workplace.

Assessment Methods

To complete the Assistant Accountant apprenticeship, apprentices will be expected to complete:

  • A synoptic end-test covering the knowledge and skills gained throughout the on-programme stage and detailed in the standard.
  • A portfolio and reflective discussion which will comprise a range of evidence produced in the work-place to show that the Apprentice has met the knowledge, skills and behaviours detailed in the standard. The reflective discussion will be a structured interview to examine this evidence and the learner journey in more detail.

Progression Options

On successful completion you could be offered a permanent contract with your employer and work as a Manager or in a senior support role.
