What will the apprentice be doing?

Bookkeeping is one of the most important services we offer our clients and it is growing! We are looking for that individual who feels they may have a passion for bookkeeping alone and not necessarily want to become a fully trained accountant.

The role will consist of:

  • In-house bookkeeping
  • The preparation of VAT returns
  • And some management accounts

Most of our bookkeeping is completed on Xero with add on software to remove the dull and repetitive parts from the job! Full training will be given and in a short time, you will find yourself interpreting client data to help their business thrive. The bookkeeping role can develop further to include more detailed management accounts over time.

What training will the apprentice take and what qualification will the apprentice get at the end?

You will undertake the “Assistant Accountant” Apprenticeship (an Advanced Apprenticeship in Accounting), with full support from Accountancy Learning as part of their Apprenticeship Programme.

Assessment will be by an “End Point Assessment” and will be graded “Pass” or “Distinction”. This will include two elements:

  • A Professional Discussion. This will include a series of questions allowing you to to display the knowledge and experience you have obtained over your apprenticeship. You will build a Portfolio of reflections and product evidence that will be used for discussion points in the PD.
  • A Synoptic Exam. This will include elements you have learnt throughout your studies of the individual AAT Units and this will contribute towards your end grade.

You will be prepared for both of these elements by undertaking studies for the AAT (Level 3) Advanced Diploma in Accounting. These will underpin both elements of your “end point assessment”. As such, it is anticipated that your apprenticeship duration will be for 15-18 months although earlier completion is possible, provided the duration exceeds one year and a week.

You will receive support from both the employer, and the training provider, to complete and achieve your Apprenticeship and will be given time to study during the week on a day release basis. As you are working towards a professional qualification, it is also expected that you will continue your studies outside of normal office hours.

As you learn more in both the office and in your studies your responsibilities, and the variety of tasks you undertake, are expected to increase.

Those with previous relevant qualification and experience may be considered for a Higher Apprenticeship undertaking the Professional Accountant Standard.

What is the expected career progression after this apprenticeship?

We will support you through your level 3 apprenticeship with Cert BK added on to this. A level 4 professional apprenticeship will follow this.
