Overview

Accountancy. One of the big four accountancy firms, an apprenticeship here will set you up in the financial world. The approach is neat and tidy and the “flying start” looks to be underpinned by good solid groundwork. Not a degree apprenticeship in the full sense, but an alternative approach and PWC have been running apprenticeships long enough for them to be well accepted. You wind up with 80 per cent of a fabulous qualification at the end of four years and a guaranteed job whilst you do the extra year.
