APPRENTICESHIPS

Apprenticeships in accounting

White Horse Training have successfully delivered the AAT programme, together with Apprenticeships in Accounting, for more than 20 years.  We are a government approved provider for the new Accountancy Apprenticeship standards for both levy-paying and non-levy paying employers.  Large employers may use levy funds to pay for the apprenticeships whilst the government may provide funding for smaller employers.  We welcome enquiries from prospective students and employers interested in taking on an apprentice.

Is an apprenticeship right for you?

What is an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships are formal, nationally recognised training programmes. As an apprentice you will have the opportunity to achieve a qualification while developing knowledge, skills and experience in the workplace.

The benefits of an apprenticeship

As an apprentice you will be employed – earning a wage, whilst benefiting from an invaluable mix of theoretical learning and practical training. An apprenticeship provides an excellent foundation for your career and may be a perfect starting place for progression to further professional qualifications and the route to becoming a Chartered Accountant.

Level 3 Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship

Under the Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship, apprentices will achieve the knowledge element of the apprenticeship standard by studying the content of the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting Level 3.  Although not a requirement of the apprenticeship, apprentices and employers are encouraged to work towards achievement of this qualification in addition to the full apprenticeship standard.  This element is taught on a block release study programme of three days a month here at our offices in Bath.

As well as building technical knowledge, the apprenticeship helps apprentices to develop the skills and behaviours essential for their role in the workplace and the sector in which they work.  We will support apprentices and the employer to meet all the requirements of the apprenticeship standard.

Those starting under this apprenticeship would normally have acquired knowledge equivalent to that gained under the AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting Level 2, have A Levels or equivalent, or have appropriate accounting experience.

Level 4 Professional Accounting Technician Apprenticeship

Apprentices on the Professional Accounting Technician Apprenticeship will achieve their knowledge element of the apprenticeship standard by studying the content of the AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting Level 4.  Although not a requirement of the apprenticeship, apprentices and employers are encouraged to work towards achievement of this qualification in addition to the full apprenticeship standard.  This element is taught on a block release study programme of three days a month here at our offices in Bath.

This apprenticeship builds on existing technical knowledge and helps apprentices to further develop their wider professional skills and behaviours essential to success in an office environment.  We will support apprentices and the employer to meet all the requirements of the apprenticeship standard.

Those starting under this apprenticeship would normally have acquired the knowledge as gained through the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting Level 3.
