Accountancy Summer School – Online for 2020

Every year First Intuition centres across the country invite local students to come along to one of our Accountancy Summer Schools to find out more about our industry and the careers available within it.

We always love meeting young people who are keen to find out more about the world of accountancy and despite the current Covid-19 pandemic, we are still planning for our Accountancy Summer School to go ahead.

This year’s event will, therefore, take place using our ‘Virtual Classroom’ which we’ve been using successfully to teach our own students in the current circumstances.
