Joining as a School or College Leaver

In Deals you’ll gain the Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (CFAB). It’s the first stage of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) Chartered Accountancy qualification and it’s nationally recognised.  In England and Wales you'll also gain a Level 4 Apprenticeship across your School and College Leaver Programme. You’ll enjoy on-the-job training and coaching, alongside time out to study for your exams. You’ll have access to the same progression opportunities whether you join straight from school or as a graduate.

Our training provider has created a bespoke exam course to equip you with the technical knowledge required for the apprenticeship.

The apprenticeship consists of a number of  knowledge, skills and behaviours an ICAEW School Leaver is expected to acquire throughout the programme (the learning element of the apprenticeship). The exam courses, skill days and work experience obtained in your qualification will allow you to acquire these. You will demonstrate this in the end point assessment, which consists of a written portfolio of evidence based on your work experience in those last 6-9 months, followed by a Role Simulation exam. 

The minimum requirements are 112 UCAS tariff from up to three full A-Levels (or equivalent) and a Grade C or 4 or above in GCSE (or equivalent) English Language and Mathematics. For full details on all our entry criteria, please check our FAQs page.

This leads businesses to overlook what could be meaningful intelligence that could be the crucial value driver for future mergers, acquisitions, disposals or restructuring activities.
