Charlie Taylor - Accounting Apprenticeship
Charlie Taylor is on an AAT Apprenticeship Level 3 programme which involves studying one day a week at Carshalton College and four days at a local Accounting firm, Rothmans Chartered Accounting.
“I took a huge risk, leaving mid-year through my A ‘Levels. I wasn’t happy with the course and really wanted to leave school. I attended an Open Event at Carshalton College and had a chat with the Apprenticeship & Recruitment team. I was good at Maths so they suggested an Accountancy Apprenticeship. Two interviews were set up for me and I was offered a job after the first interview.
I completed the Level 2 Accountancy Apprenticeship which was more of a basic foundation level and now studying the Level 3 which is more related to the work I am doing. I have been given more responsibility to work independently, to go out to see clients, to conduct audits etc.”
Charlie hopes to continue on this career path to Level 4 AAT and then an ACA qualification.
