Reinvent Your Team’s Training with White Horse Training

How can White Horse Training help your business?

To be able to work effectively in the sphere of accountancy, it’s crucial for your whole team to stay abreast of industry practices and standards. Accounting requires a wide range of skills and knowledge; if you’re not keeping up to date with the latest legal requirements, best practices, and tax changes, you’ll be left in the dust by other accountants who are.

Luckily, accounting bodies like ICAEW, ACCA, and AAT require or recommend accountants to complete courses and training that contribute to their continuing professional development (CPD).

Completing CPD is critical to any accountant’s personal growth and can improve their competency, qualify them for raises, and boost their career prospects. On top of this, CPD training courses are vital for your long-term career advancement and can help you become an experienced and valuable accountant to clients and companies.

Why should you choose an apprenticeship with White Horse Training?

What apprenticeships do White Horse Training offer?

We offer the following apprenticeship programmes:

  • AAT Level 3 Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship – this apprenticeship covers a wide range of accountancy techniques and disciplines, and is the industry standard qualification for those wanting a career in accountancy. Although no prior experience is needed, Level 3 is a natural progression for learners who have completed A-level accounting, AAT Level 2 or have relevant work experience. The areas covered in detail include: bookkeeping, spreadsheets, and the preparation of final accounts. The course takes roughly 12-15 months to complete, depending on employer/apprentice preference.
  • AAT Level 4 Professional Accounting Technician Apprenticeship – this apprenticeship is the gateway to more senior accountancy roles. It delves into complex accounting and finance areas, aiming to build on the candidate’s previous knowledge. From recommending accounting systems and drafting financial statements for companies, to the composition of exhaustive, complex management accounting reports, this programme readies candidates for professional qualifications and promotion into senior finance roles. The course takes approximately 15-18 months to complete.
