Accounting Technician Apprenticeship Information Session

Last chance to book your place at the Accounting Technician Apprenticeship Information Session:

Date: Wednesday April 20th

Venue: Pearse Street, Dublin 2

Time: 12.30pm to 1.30pm 

Accounting Technicians Ireland is rolling out a new and innovative apprenticeship in September this year, which will help young school-leavers get on the fast track to a career in accounting.

The Accounting Technician Apprenticeship is delivered with five of our partner colleges around the country.

Accounting Technicians are qualified accounting professionals employed throughout all levels of finance across the public sector, industry, private accountancy practices and self-employment.

The Accounting Technician Apprenticeship is a two-year programme which combines ‘on-the-job’ work experience with academic study. Apprentices will work at their employer’s office four days a week and attend classes at a local college one day a week.

They will earn while they learn, receiving the standard industry salary for an incoming trainee Accounting Technician.

We’re holding a special information session for Guidance Counsellors, Principals and Accountancy/Maths Teachers on Wednesday April 20th, at our offices on Pearse Street, Dublin 2.

The session takes place from 12.30pm to 1.30pm and light refreshments will be served.

To book your place, please contact Karen McQuillan by email at or by phone at (01) 649 8100.
