Our previous students:

“I initially joined as I was looking to improve the quality of my future university applications by having some relevant work experience as I was interested in the financial sector. During the programme I was given insight into the variety and scope of the accounting industry.”

“I was given some first-hand experience in some of the day-to-day tasks and networked with individuals across the office. I also learnt about the different pathways into accounting. It helped me get my role now as I initially wasn’t interested in a school leaver programmes as I had been told previously university is the superior option, but this isn’t the case at all. It also provided me some basic knowledge and understanding of the industry which allowed me to be more prepared when I applied.”
