Here’s what some of the previous attendees had to say about their experience of Summer School:

 

“I’ve discovered that accountancy is a very vague term and there are many roles within accountancy. I’ve learnt about others’ experiences and I now know there are many routes I can go down to qualification, when I thought there was only one!”

Gemma, 17

 

“I’ve learned that an accountant analyses finances within a business and can advise the business. The most useful part of the Summer School was when we got to analyse a business case study and decide which proposal would be the best route for the business.”

Thomas, 17

 

“After the past few days, I’ve learned that the role of an accountant entails a lot more than I initially expected. I feel that you need more skills, like presentation and decision-making skills other than just mathematical ability. The Summer School has given me a snapshot of what the job entails with the business case study, which enabled me to think like an accountant, such an analysing.”

Sophie, 17
