The Initiative

A finance or accounting assistant can work in practically any industry. Corporate firms, single proprietorships, partnerships, the public sector, not-for-profit organizations, and educational institutions are all potential employers.

An accounts or finance assistant may work internally for a company, for an accounting firm, a bookkeeping business, a shared services provider, independently, or on behalf of numerous clients.

  • Apprentices must get the Level 2 AAT Foundation qualification in accounting.
  • Before taking the end-point evaluation, apprentices who don't already have level 2 English and math will need to get those skills.

Delivery Model

  • Depending on the number of students, a hybrid of in-person workshops and online webinars
  • Monthly one-on-one mentorship and tutoring sessions to assist with applying information, skills, and behaviors.
  • Reviewing progress every four months

The Guidelines

Occupational standards serve as the foundation for apprenticeship standards. An occupational standard is a brief and succinct document that outlines the "duties" and "knowledge, skills, and behaviors" (KSBs) needed to carry out these duties competently, as well as any qualifications that must be completed and, if applicable, alignment with professional recognition
