Higher Apprenticeship

CIMA, together with BPP and a network of employers and educational partners, has created the first ever Higher Apprenticeship in Management Accounting. 

Through the apprenticeship, businesses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are able to employ talented, young, driven individuals who have completed their A levels and train them with skills businesses need whilst they are studying for the CIMA Certificate in Business Accounting qualification.

Training apprentices can be more cost effective than hiring skilled staff, leading to lower overall training and recruitment costs. Apprentices tend to be eager, motivated, flexible and loyal to the company that invested in them. What’s more, the government funds up to 100% of the training costs.

To underline its commitment to the apprenticeship cause, the Government has dedicated significant funding, investing GBP250 million over five years to create 50,000 Apprenticeship places by 2015.

The CIMA Higher Apprenticeship event

As part of National Apprenticeship Week 2014, CIMA played host to the 'Great Apprenticeships - the CIMA Higher Apprenticeship Showcase'. 

The event provided a fantastic insight into the CIMA Higher Apprenticeship scheme for employers. In attendance were apprentices and employers from Fujitsu, Siemens, Visa, Harvey’s Brewery and Experian as well as CIMA members and BPP. The success of the programme is evident from the record number of young people who are now taking part in apprenticeship schemes across the country.
