How to get started

Recognised as an ICAEW Partner in Learning, working with ICAEW in the professional development of students

To get started you will need to sign a training agreement with an ICAEW approved employer. You should then look for an ICAEW Partner in Learning like First Intuition for courses to help you pass the professional exams.

School leavers with A levels can also study for the ACA but must first complete the Certificate in Finance and Business (or CFAB) which comprises the six Certificate level modules of the ACA Qualification. Alternatively you might choose to study for the AAT Qualification and then fast-track to the ACA qualification.

Not sure if ICAEW is the right qualification for you? Check out our qualification guide or call us for advice.

CFAB apprenticeships are also available to help with the cost of the certificate papers.  Please contact us for details or email reading@fi.co.uk.
