Moore Stephens’ in-house training and support for employees combined with First Intuition’s high-quality accountancy tuition won ‘Best Training Provider’ as a joint award. We were thrilled to have received the award and believe it was all down to working closely with Moore Stephens and taking steps to align the tuition experience with the work environment.
We asked Elizabeth Stacey, Learning and Development Manager at Moore Stephens, what she thought was the key to the successful partnership.
How does FI work with Moore Stephens on their apprenticeship programmes and how satisfied are you with this process?
First Intuition have worked closely with us to introduce our apprenticeship programme. They share insight and knowledge about the apprenticeship funding rules and best practice, which has enabled us to introduce our programme successfully, with clear communications and great engagement from the business and our apprentices.
How happy are your students on this programme?
Our apprentices are really happy with the support and training they receive – demonstrated by the joint win by Moore Stephens and First Intuition in the 2018 School Leaver Awards for ‘Best Training Provider’. The award was a result of feedback and voting by the apprentices themselves which confirms the programme is making a positive impact.
At First Intuition, the apprentices have a dedicated skills coach and they meet regularly to review progress. The coach is available to answer any queries and offer support on any aspect of the apprenticeship along the way. Our students are always excited to attend college as they feel it is a relaxed and inclusive environment where they can really learn and challenge themselves to achieve their goals.
How happy is Moore Stephens with the service?
It’s so helpful to have dedicated points of contact for our apprenticeship programmes. This enables us to build great relationships with our key contacts at First Intuition and they are able to really get to know us as a firm and tailor their service to us accordingly which is great!
