A career in chartered accountancy offers far more than you’d imagine. It’s a passport to opportunity across a huge range of workplaces around the world.
From the most renowned professional service firms, to entrepreneurial start-ups, charities and government bodies, there’s no end to where this career can take you. You could be managing the funding of cutting-edge technology products one day, to guiding the financial development of an international charity the next.
Who are we?
We’re one of the world’s leading providers of training and professional development for accountants. Through us, aspiring accountants can take a qualification called the ACA and become ICAEW Chartered Accountants. It’s our job to support you during your training and make sure that you’re reaching your full potential.
What Apprenticeships do we offer?
Keen to start earning and learning? An ICAEW Apprenticeship could be your first step to qualifying as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant. Our Level 4 and Level 7 Apprenticeships are a great choice if you’ve finished your A-levels, or similar qualifications, and are looking to dive straight into work.
The Level 4 Apprenticeship lasts between 18-24 months. During this time you will study and complete ICAEW’s Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (ICAEW CFAB) – which consists of the first six exam modules of the ACA qualification. You’ll also earn a salary and learn essential business skills at the same time.
The Level 7 Apprenticeship takes 4-5 years to complete and during this time you will complete the full ACA qualification and can apply to become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.
What are the requirements?
You don’t need to be a mathematical wizard to do the ACA. You don’t even need maths as one of your A-levels.
What most employers expect you to have is at least a B in GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent) and also above 112 UCAS points.
