We’ve offered Early in Career programmes at BDO for several years and we’re fully committed to the support and development of all trainees entering our firm.
We offer opportunities for both Graduates and School Leavers. Both our Graduate and Apprenticeship Programmes are formally recognised as a Level 7 Accountancy/Taxation Professional Apprenticeship*. BDO is fully committed to the government initiative to increase learning and training through apprenticeship standards in the accountancy profession. This is something which we are really proud of as we want to ensure that we are raising the standard of training within the industry, and ensuring that we are delivering a rounded and exceptional development programme for you.
We also offer a Summer School and Internship Programme to give you the opportunity to find out more about a career at BDO, whether you are a School Leaver or Graduate, you have the opportunity to select the right programme for you.
*Please note that the Level 7 Accountancy/Taxation Professional Apprenticeship covers the following qualifications: ACCA, CIMA, ICAEW and ATT/CTA pathway
DEVELOPING YOUR POTENTIAL
You can expect training and development in not just your professional qualification, which you will be studying for, but also in the skills and behaviours which we know are required to be successful in your role.
At the start of your programme you will be provided with a detailed apprenticeship learning plan of your programme, as well as detailing your end point assessment and what to expect. This means that at the end of your Programme you will be able to qualify as a Chartered ICAEW/ICAS member and also hold a Level 7 Accountancy/Taxation Professional Apprenticeship, which is the equivalent of a Master’s degree.
THE IMPORTANCE OF TRAINEES
