What you will do in your working day

Our Level 4 Finance Higher Apprenticeship scheme aims to develop A-level or equivalent qualified individuals into Chartered Management Accountants with a broad understanding of all aspects of finance and how these fit into the wider business organisation.

On our Level 4 Finance Higher Apprenticeship, you’ll complete the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting over a two-year period. This will be studied alongside the relevant skills and behaviours to be successful in your role.

To complement your studies, the Apprenticeship has been designed to expose you to a variety of Finance roles. Each role will provide you with the opportunity to develop your finance and business acumen skills as well as growing your soft skills.

For the duration of the scheme, you’ll work towards your apprenticeship whilst rotating around some core areas within Finance and studying through day release.

This scheme would particularly suit an individual who is keen to get involved with all aspects of finance, who enjoys problem solving and who is committed to furthering their career through an external study programme.

If you demonstrate the aspiration and potential to further excel in your field, you’ll have the opportunity of progressing onto the Level 7 Finance Degree Apprenticeship, which is equivalent to a master’s degree, for an additional three-year period.

We will continue to support you towards your full CIMA qualification and become a fully qualified Chartered Accountant.
