ACCA Students

ACCA provides an alternative qualification for those who do not wish to undertake the CA training route. The firm employs ACCA students who join us either from further education, such as an HND or degree course, or from other employers where they may have already started ACCA studies.

Training is flexible and study is undertaken primarily through the use of home-based study packs. The firm pays for all educational material and the first sitting of each exam. Paid study and exam leave is provided.

ACCA has recently introduced a five-year training programme which is suitable for school leavers.

Our ACCA students undertake a variety of client assignments allocated in accordance with experience.

  • What type of work will I be doing?

    Our ACCA students undertake a variety of client assignments. We allocate assignments to staff in a way which matches an individual’s experience to the size and nature of each job. We aim to provide a supportive learning environment in which a person’s exposure to larger and more complex assignments increases gradually in line with the level of their experience.

    Please let us know if you would like to gain more experience in a specific department as we will take this into consideration.

  • Do I get holidays?

    Yes, you will accrue holidays in the same manner as any other member of our team in addition to prescribed study and examination leave. Historically many of our students have supplemented study leave by using holiday days, this is however a matter of personal preference and not prescriptive.
