Posted: 13 August 2019 at 9:40 am | Author: Amber Tennant
We’re delighted to announce that the new Level 2 Accounts/Finance Assistant Apprenticeship Standard has just been released by the Institute for Apprenticeships!
If you are a small employer (you have an annual payroll bill of less than £3 million), this means you can now train a finance apprentice for just £300! If you’re a large organisation, you can also benefit with all fees now being payable from your levy funds. What’s more – all fees are fully inclusive of first exam attempts!
But that’s not all…
Employ an apprentice aged 16-18 and save over £1,000!
If you take on an apprentice under 19 years of age, you will receive a £1,000 incentive from the government towards the training fees! In addition, if your organisation has less than 50 contracted employees the course fees will be fully funded!
This change is happening now! CAW Business School are offering the new Level 2 Accounts/Finance Assistant Apprenticeship Standard ready for apprentices looking to start this September!

- This apprenticeship consists of the knowledge, skills and behaviours required by someone working in an Accounts/Finance Assistant role, to develop the required finance skills and enhance professional status.
