Why should I attend Accountancy Academy 2022?
Students attending will get a really clear idea about whether this is a career that might suit them and how they can get started. Equally some students will make up their minds that this is not a route for them. We believe by demonstrating what the industry is about and explaining the roles that are available give attendees a greater understanding to help them make choices about their next steps. We’ll cover both post-school and university routes and will also explain more about apprenticeships in this industry.
