Apprenticeships with First Intuition

What is an apprenticeship?
An apprenticeship is a real job, giving employees the chance to gain a nationally recognised qualification whilst earning a salary.

Apprenticeships with First Intuition
In order to deliver apprenticeships that start after 1st May 2017, training providers must be listed on the register of apprenticeship training providers (RoATP).

First Intuition London, Bristol, Cambridge, Reading and Chelmsford have been listed as main providers on the RoATP, which means we are able to deliver a full range of apprenticeship options within the accountancy industry. First Intuition Maidstone is a subcontractor with Kent County Council.

The Skills Funding Agency states:

Organisations that are listed on the RoATP have been through an application process with the SFA that considers due diligence, capability, quality and financial health to assess their capability to deliver high-quality apprenticeship training.
