Nominations are now open for the 2012 Scottish Modern Apprenticeship Awards which will be held in November.
This event celebrates the stories of inspirational trainees who are earning and learning on the Scottish modern apprenticeship framework, and it would be great to see some AAT faces being recognised for all their hard work.
Congratulations to all the winners at last week’s Scottish Accountancy Awards.
AAT sponsored the new category of Training Manager of the Year, which was won by Iain Abernethy from Johnston Carmichael. The firm also picked up Accountancy Firm of the Year. You can read about Iain’s experiences of delivering AAT training in our case study section and on AAT Comment.
In our final webinar for Scottish Apprenticeship week, we invite employers to find out more about what is involved in taking on an AAT trainee.
This session will tell you everything you need to know about apprenticeships, from accessing funding to finding the best trainee for your business. To sign up for this event click on the link below:
