AAT Level 4 Apprentices
The Accounting Level 4 Apprenticeship will involve you working in an accounts department, taking on more responsibility in supporting a business or organisation manage their money properly. Running a business involves a lot of financial activities, from expenses and bills to taxes and payroll. Accountants keep track of all these areas and more. It takes a business brain, as well as a way with numbers, to get ahead.
As a Runshaw Apprentice, you will be offered support and be encouraged to develop the ability to work individually as well as being a team player. You will be expected to show enthusiasm and the motivation to reach and exceed their goals. You will be employed in a suitable role earning an Apprenticeship salary and learning on the job. In addition, you will attend College for teaching and assessment of your Level 4 qualification and will be visited in the workplace to give you support and guidance on applying your skills to prepare you for the end point assessment.
This particular course will see you work towards a Professional Accounting Technician Apprenticeship Standard consisting of:
• Skills, knowledge & behaviours
• AAT level 4 Advanced Diploma in Accounting
5 x GCSE A*-C /Grade 9-4 which must include GCSE English and maths at Grade A*-C/Grade 9-4 or equivalent, or have successfully completed the Professional Accountant Apprenticeship at Level 3.
Continual assessment and review through formative and summative assessments during your apprenticeship. These assessment methods may include completion of assignments, workbooks, reflective accounts, discussions, knowledge tests and observations.
Once deemed competent in all areas of the standard the apprentice will then go through independent end point assessment carried out by an external assessor.
Looking further ahead to possible progressions, this standard will provide the foundation to start a number of career pathways including Audit Trainee, Corporate Recovery Analyst, Credit Controller or Tax Accountant.
Runshaw College believes that attendance and punctuality are key factors in the timely success of an Apprenticeship. Apprentices are accepted on the basis that they will have a high level of attendance at College and in the workplace. Persistent or regular absenteeism is a disciplinary offence and may lead to dismissal from the programme.
Runshaw Apprentices will be offered support and be encouraged to develop the ability to work on their own and as team players. We expect our Apprentices to show enthusiasm and the motivation to reach and exceed their goals.
It is important to maintain time keeping and attendance for both college and work place sessions to ensure learners remain on target.
