Apprenticeships for SMEs

FI Maidstone and the ICAEW discuss how apprenticeships can work for SMEs

First Intuition Maidstone were pleased to team up with the ICAEW to look at how accountancy apprenticeships can work for, and help, SMEs in the sector.

How can apprenticehips work for SMEs?

For too long SMEs have been cut out of the funding priorities of the ESFA, but since January 2020 these same companies have been given access to the vital funding needed to start new apprentices.

Employer event with FI Maidstone and ICAEW

This event saw Ian Fidock, Managing Director of First Intuition Maidstone, Shane Reeves Apprenticeship Centre Manager, and Frank Garvey of the ICAEW, discuss the benefits of apprenticeships, their design, and how First Intuition Maidstone can help tailor a programme to meet the needs of local businesses. Watch this video for the full discussion on how apprenticeships can work for SMEs.

Accountancy apprenticeships are a key route for budding new accountants to enter the industry, get qualified, and apply the technical knowledge they learn to a workplace environment. Not only do SMEs receive funding to support their training requirements, but apprenticeships provide the opportunity to mould an individual to fit an organisation’s culture.

How can apprenticeships work for your organisation?

Supported by First Intuition Maidstone, and the ICAEW team, our programmes support employers from becoming ICAEW approved employers, through to the onboarding of new trainees, and the development of their recruits for welcome retention upon successful completion.

To explore how apprenticeships could work for your organisation, and to find out more about our programmes don’t hesitate to get in touch.
