Structure for our apprentices 

Students are expected to attend classes one day a week completing the AAT Accounting Qualification alongside working within the accounting and financial services sector. 

Initially, students that lack accounting experience will be placed in a voluntary role with St Mary Accounting Services, where they will take on the role of an accounts assistant and shadow a chartered certified accountant, working on live client accounts. 

The work experience consists of tasks such as 

Cashflow forecasts 
Accounts Receivable duties 
Accounts Payable duties 
Bookkeeping using Sage, Xero and Excel 
Management Accounts 
VAT 
Payroll 
Annual Accounts, Taxation and many more 

Placements and Apprenticeships 

Students are given a job strategy and a fair opportunity to be put forward for our roles within the accounting and financial services sector. 

Additionally, students receive support in interview preparation and marketing themselves for attractive apprenticeships and employment opportunities. 

Furthermore, once students are placed into suitable roles they stop attending work experience to accommodate for their employment with our clients.
