A career in chartered accountancy offers far more than you’d imagine. It’s a passport to opportunity across a huge range of workplaces around the world.

From the most renowned professional service firms, to entrepreneurial start-ups, charities and government bodies, there’s no end to where this career can take you. You could be managing the funding of cutting-edge technology products one day, to guiding the financial development of an international charity the next.

So, whether you’re considering an apprenticeship, a school leaver programme, or a university degree, it’s time to start exploring your options and see where you can go.

What do we do?
We’re one of the world’s leading providers of training and professional development for accountants. Through us, aspiring accountants can take a qualification called the ACA and become ICAEW Chartered Accountants. It’s our job to support you during your training and make sure that you’re reaching your full potential.

School Leaver Opportunities
You might be considering whether to go straight to work or go to university first. Either way, we have plenty of options for you.

Complete an ICAEW Apprenticeship and you could become a fully qualified Chartered Accountant within 4-5 years. We have two levels of apprenticeship available, Level 4 and Level 7.

Alternatively, you could join one of our school leaver programmes. You could also leave school or college and begin an AAT qualification.

There are also multiple options if you want to go to university.

Find out more about all of these options at icaew.com/routeplanner.

What do you need?
You don’t need to be a mathematical wizard to do the ACA. You don’t even need maths as one of your A-levels. What’s more, if you choose to go to university, we welcome all degrees.

What most employers expect you to have  is at least a B in GCSE Maths and English (or equivalent) and also above 112 UCAS points. If you choose to complete a degree, you’ll be expected to achieve at least a 2:1 by most employers.
