The BPP Professional Education Group is offering those from 18-23 the chance to become a fully-qualified accountant through a new apprenticeship scheme.

Students who meet the entry criteria for the BSc Professional Accounting may join the degree programme with accredited prior learning.

This degree entry route will be available as part of a five-year programme, which starts with the apprenticeship. Students will be able to study for their degree online and will be funded by their employers.

This scheme was first launched in September and says it allows young people to start work straight from A Levels, whilst studying to become a chartered accountant.

The apprenticeship scheme begins with 36 months study for the ICAEW qualification.

On completion, students will be eligible to apply to undertake further study to gain a BSc Professional Accounting. They will then be able to go on to their final year where they will complete the Advanced Stage of the ACA Qualification.

The scheme is designed to give students a combination of academic and competency-based learning so that they are professionally prepared for a working environment, the BPP said.
