Following an announcement by the Scottish Government on 15th May 2012 there will be some changes to learner eligibility for ILA Scotland funding and the administration of the scheme – these changes come into effect on 1 July 2012.
Amanda Meyer is Professor of Accountancy at Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University (RGU), voted Best Modern University 2012 by The Sunday Times.
With Scottish Apprenticeship Week 2012 on the horizon, Professor Meyer explains why alternative routes such as apprenticeships are more important than ever when it comes to getting school-leavers into rewarding careers:
“Interestingly, unlike many other professional accounting bodies around the world, access to training for the UK based bodies such as CIMA, ACCA, ICAEW and ICAS, is not restricted to graduates. School leaver options are available for many of the UK based professional bodies, either directly or through access programmes such as AAT.
“School leavers are therefore now faced with a real choice and I suspect that the educational landscape for professional accountancy training will change quite significantly over the next few years.”
