What do our apprentices say?
Akash became the first apprentice from the Accounting Academy to go on and graduate as a Chartered Accountant. He is now a Financial Analyst at Johnson & Johnson.
‘‘It’s been hard but I’m reaping the rewards now. It was surreal to be offered a position at Johnson & Johnson eight months ago, especially after being told by my sixth form tutors that I wouldn’t be successful unless I went to university. I’m thrilled to be working for one of the largest and most globally recognised companies in the world, it’s an incredible feeling. Having accountancy qualifications gives you such a great foundation, and means you can work in virtually any business.’’
Bola undertook her apprenticeship with Berg Kaprow Lewis LLP, now BKL, in Finchley, before landing a job as a Group Reporting Accountant at Santander UK.
‘‘The apprenticeship was very good in relating what I have been learning at the College to what I am doing at work every day. The tutors covered every aspect of the subject and were always very helpful and supportive. All the events, training and preparation that LTSB provided was so helpful, particularly in terms of public speaking. It meant I felt I could make a difference straightaway when I got my placement.’’
