Degree vs apprenticeship

aat comment

Could the tables be turning? Are apprenticeships getting the attention they deserve? In the accountancy and finance sector we’ve always offered a non-graduate route into the accountancy profession.

For those waiting on their A level results next week and have their heart set on university, please don’t rule out an apprenticeship. (There are so many opportunities across a huge range of industries). You can earn while you learn and also you’ll have your feet firmly on the career ladder.

We’ve created this infographic to just highlight some facts we felt worth sharing ahead of A level results day. Good luck! (PS: Yes, we’re probably a bit bias, we do love high value apprenticeships and would like to see more businesses offer them).

Thinking that you may wish to work in finance and accountancy? Why not check out our qualification offering? We offer a non-graduate route that can take you all the way to the top. Perhaps you’d like to hear what AAT students have to say, take a peek at the AAT facebook page and listen in or start a discussion.
