What you will do in your working day

Within the apprenticeship you will have the opportunity to develop your accounting and finance skills in a practical setting. You will support your line manager in providing analysis and developing financial modelling skills in addition to your study material. Some of the key tasks you will perform are:

  • Perform valuation bridging analysis through analysis of current and historic financial models including identifying reasons for value change. Presenting this analysis in clear, easy-to-understand investor reports
  • Support more experienced colleagues in building financial models for funds and the assets they invest in, as well as assisting with acquisitions, disposals and refinancing
  • Present your analysis and financial models to clients
  • Interpret and analyse financial modelling results in a commercial - real-life - context of the performance of the asset or fund
  • Provide feedback to others about their work

The training you will be getting

At the end of the qualification, you should expect to receive a Level 3 apprenticeship and a level 3 AAT qualification. Following this, we would encourage and support you to take the level 4 AAT qualification before moving into a CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants) or CFA (Chartered Financial Analyst) qualification.

You will have the option to study from home using BPP's online or online live courses or you may choose to attend in centre classrooms for your study, depending on your preference.

The training is generally one day per week, however certain courses may have a block release.

Functional skills in maths (if required).
