An accountancy apprenticeship programme is to develop 140 jobs in Eire this 12 months.
pplications are now open for the Accounting Technicians Ireland (ATI) apprenticeship – based in faculties in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick, Monaghan, Waterford and Wicklow.
The ATI apprenticeship is a funded, two-yr, work-centered finding out programme in which apprentices function, find out and earn.
Dublin-dependent ATI graduate Katie Mikulan (23) initially pursued a diploma just before determining to commence the apprenticeship in 2020.
She said: “I started an accounting and finance diploma after my Leaving Certificate, but college was not what I expected I did not appreciate it as much as I imagined and remaining following a yr and a 50 percent.
“College can be high priced, but a funded apprenticeship programme is a good different.
“I would propose the apprenticeship if you are not sure about entire-time 3rd-stage education. It also delivers exemptions for a lot of of the leading qualified accounting bodies if you would like to go on to develop into a entirely certified accountant.”
Ms Mikulan now functions as a tax operations officer with Citibank and hopes to become a totally skilled tax adviser with the Irish Tax Institute.
College leavers, Leaving Certificate pupils, job changers and mature learners can apply as a result of Accounting Technicians Ireland.
