A new accountancy academy is opening in Warrington next month.
National education and training provider Learning Curve Group and professional services group Optionis have combined on an initiative for 16- to 18-year-olds.
Thirty places are available for the first intake of the Accounting Apprenticeship Academy which is based in Optionis’ Centre Park Square headquarters.
It offers a clear qualification progression route, with options for those signing up for the Level 2 AAT Accounting Apprentices course to work to attain level 4.
Learners will undergo a mix of academic teaching, provided by a Learning Curve Group education team, and work experience in Optionis’ offices alongside its mentors.
The partners say they are responding to figures from the National Apprenticeship Service which show high demand for accountancy training in the Warrington area.
