Our Accountancy courses and apprenticeships are delivered by tutors with strong backgrounds in the accounting and financial sectors and their professional expertise is valued by our students. There are well-equipped classrooms with interactive technology and specialist computer software including the industry standard Sage 50.
A number part-time Accounting and Financial Services professional development courses are offered, which are most suitable for those already working in a business environment but hoping to top up their knowledge in this field.
The UK has a large financial services industry which offer a variety of roles. You’ll need to be good with numbers and have good organisational, business and people skills in these jobs. Apprenticeships and courses in financial services are designed to provide learners with the relevant training and education required to work within a financial advisory services environment.
Considering an apprenticeship? Many people look to an apprenticeship to gain skills directly in the workplace.
Aimed at those who are involved in accounting, mortgage advice and financial services as their primary work activity and have the ability to carry out a range of routine tasks in their role, anyone aged 16 years and older can study an apprenticeship – there are no upper age limits for apprenticeships. With our apprenticeships you may be required to attend college at our Colchester campus or in some cases we will visit you in the workplace for your training assessment.
Career pathways may include progression to senior advisory roles. Possible further study and course progression opportunities may include higher education or industry specialist qualifications.
