Finance trainee programme for West Midlands

The Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA) is piloting a new finance trainee programme for apprenticeships in the West Midlands.

The programme is specifically targeted to young people not in education, work or training, and offers the opportunity to work in local public and private organisations.

After twelve months, trainees will gain an AAT Level 4 qualification and be part-CIPFA qualified.

Giles Orr, head of CIPFA’s Education and Training Centre, said: “This new scheme is good for both the trainees and employers. The scheme provides young unemployed people with an opportunity to gain work experience and a qualification but it also provides these employers with a low cost and low risk source of new trainees.

“We are very excited about this pilot model and if it is successful we hope to be able to roll it out around the rest of the country.”
