EY graduates to become apprentices
20 December 2017
EY has announced that it will be transforming its graduate programme in 2018 by offering apprenticeships to both existing students and new joiners.
Eligible graduates will now have to work towards their professional accountancy qualification and a Government-led Level 7 Apprenticeship in Accountancy and Taxation.
By the end of next year EY said around 1,000 EY tax and assurance graduates and school leavers are expected to be completing a Level 7 Apprenticeship at EY on top of taking their professional exams. The scheme will only cover graduates in England.
EY said the move will “better prepare students with the skills and experiences needed for the workplace”.
MD of Talent, Maggie Stilwell said EY wants to help change the perception of apprenticeships, which are now an increasingly attractive option for student of all abilities and backgrounds.
