This apprenticeship aims to provide apprentices with the specialist knowledge and skills required for  progressing within an accounting or finance role. 

The level three will help the apprentice to master financial processes including accounting principles and concepts, advanced bookkeeping and final accounts. 

Apprentices will also gain an understanding of business issues such as ethical practices for accountants. 

The training is designed for apprentices who are currently working within an accountancy role. As an accountancy apprentice at GB MET, you can join any of our Level 3 accountancy qualifications in Central Brighton and Worthing (Broadwater Campus).

How much will I earn?

Apprenticeships are paid training schemes. You will learn and earn at the same time.

Wages will vary depending on the type of apprenticeship, but there is a national minimum wage (NMW) in the UK which applies to all 16 – 18 year olds and to those aged 19 and over in the first year of their studies. From April 2018, this is £3.70 per hour and from April 2019 it will increase to £3.90 per hour. However, the MET encourages employers to pay at a higher hourly rate. After a year, all apprentices need to be paid the minimum wage for their age. For more information please see the Government NMW web page.

How long does an apprenticeship take?

An apprenticeship can take between one and four years to complete depending on the level and subject area. As a guide, an Intermediate Level 2 Apprenticeship usually takes around 12 to 18 months and an Advanced Level 3 Apprenticeship around 18 to 24 months.

What might my working hours be?

Apprentices are required to have a minimum of 30 contracted hours with an employer who will agree working patterns. Expect 20% of your contracted time to be dedicated to your apprenticeship training.
