What you will do in your working day
On our Apprenticeship Scheme, you will get to know our clients and build close relationships to better understand their needs. You will provide crucial advice on financial performance, business systems, culture, and risks to help every client achieve their objectives.

You will gain valuable technical skills, broad commercial understanding, and in-depth knowledge of different industry sectors on your journey to becoming a qualified Accountant at PKF Smith Cooper.
The training you will be getting
The Level 3 Assistant Accountant apprenticeship standard includes 6 AAT exams, in addition to the Synoptic Assessment as part of the End-Point Assessment (EPA) process.

The knowledge units will be delivered at the EMA training hub in Derby or Nottingham (depending on apprentices’ location) through day release.

AAT Modules are as follows:
  • Introduction to Bookkeeping (Level 2 Unit)
  • Principles of Bookkeeping (Level 2 Unit)
  • Management Accounting Techniques
  • Financial Accounting: Preparing Financial Statements
  • Business Awareness
  • Tax Processes for Business
What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship
  • There is a full-time opportunity available at the end of the apprenticeship for someone who can demonstrate competence within accountancy, in addition to showing initiative and a willingness to learn

  • You will naturally progress onto the Professional Accounting Technician Level 4 apprenticeship before agreeing a pathway to becoming a chartered accountant (Level 7)
