I attended the EY skills academy which was a two day introduction to EY. Over the two days we completed a series of task that bettered our knowledge of EY

Over the two days I became more analytical, and I improved my teamwork and presentation skills

The work fitted the purpose as I learnt enough about EY to realise I would like to work their. I met many people the same age in the same position considering EY and accountancy careers so the team was enjoyable.

Although this was only work experience I felt valued as clearly a lot of time and effort was put into making it purposeful.

The Skills Academy was very well organised, I had plenty of information in advance about it, and there was a clear programme for the two days.

I was well supported on the Skills Academy as each table had a facilitator for any questions.

We learnt of many opportunities outside of work for when we become employees.
