Course details
 
For any apprentice that does not currently hold either a Level 2 AAT qualification or an A Level in Accounting they will need to complete for FREE a Level 2 Bookkeeping qualification with Highbury College. This will be included in their Level 3 apprenticeship but will mean that their apprenticeship length will extend from 14 months to 19 months.

The apprenticeship will need you to attend classes online on a Wednesday, Thursday or Friday for the length of a full college day, which you need to commit to.
Students will be taught using our online learning platform giving the freedom to attend virtually from anywhere. Due to being a virtual apprenticeship the training can be completed at home or in the work place and would be agreed with the employer. Time spent training will come under the working hours per week.

Apprentices are independently assessed at the end of their programme to achieve the Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship at a Pass or Distinction grade.
  • Synoptic Test (3 Hours on a College PC – 40%) Covering: IT Systems/Processes, Standards, Reporting, Analysis, Comms, Problem Solving, Quality and Accountability within a Financial Accounting Environment
  • A portfolio and reflective discussion (60%) showing evidence of knowledge, skills and behaviours while within the workplace had met required standards.
  • Standard Level 2 and Level 3 AAT Exams after each individual unit.

Upon successful completion of the apprenticeship and subject to progress as an employee Hisbah LLP would like to offer you a full time job.
