Accountancy Apprenticeships: You don’t have to be good at maths!

 In Accountancy, Apprenticeships, Bookkeeping, Finance

This is one of our frequently asked questions, and we can share that it’s a common myth that you need to be good at maths to be an accountant, but it does help if you have a love for numbers.

Will Paul, Head of Delivery for Accounting and Professional Services confirms “We’ll help you to use numbers to paint a picture and communicate what those numbers mean to non-finance people.”

At Train Together we provide accountancy and finance courses from Level 1 through to Level 4, that’s the equivalent of a GCSE Grade 3,2,1 (or D,E,F,G) to a certificate of higher education (CertHE).

As part of the programme of learning, you’ll be supported to build your skillset from analytical thinking through to technical skills studying modules such as accounting principles, business awareness, and tax processes for businesses.

If you haven’t got a good level of basic Maths and English when you begin studying, we’ll support you to achieve functional skills learning too (which is a requirement for receiving apprenticeship levy funding).

“There are so many different areas of accountancy to work in”, says Will Paul, “And we see so many benefits to employers when their employees study accountancy and finance courses. They takeaway skills from day one that can impact the business, so there’s an immediate return on their investment.”

Train Together partners with Sage for computerised accounting and payroll courses and AAT for bookkeeping, and AAT for accountancy courses and apprenticeships.

We also partner with 2021 Edtech Company of the Year, Mindful Education, to deliver your course in a blended learning style, which is great for incorporating your learning in a flexible way alongside your work and life commitments.

Online lessons can be accessed via mobile, tablet or desktop and students also attend regular classes with a college tutor, where their learning is supported and embedded through group and 1:1 feedback and discussion.
