Great – now, we’ve got your attention! Not many students know what is a career in accounting or what is an accountancy apprenticeship? All you perhaps think about is that it involves Maths and numbers. Don’t let the numbers put you off, come along and gain a better understanding at our Insight-into-Accounting-as-a-career session.

As part of this session, Lucy Fernandes – founder and director of FAR Accountancy Training will introduce you to Accounting as a career option. She will also discuss where it could take you in the future and the vast range of opportunities available, the different pathways to becoming an accountant.

Lucy provides training to accounting apprentices and will unravel the wonderful world of apprenticeship’s and how you can find and apply for an apprenticeship role in this rewarding field.

You will also have the chance to hear from an apprentice. They will share their incredibly inspiring story, what motivated them to become an apprentice, how they are making a difference in their workplace and enjoying their role while learning and earning at the same time.

There will also be practical tasks to discuss and help you understand the financial statements of organisations and other financial records that assist business owners and managers make important decisions.
