Event description

Description

In recent weeks, the Level 7 Accountancy standard has been approved while the Level 6 Financial Services standard is imminent as BPP launches first intakes for both programmes from January 2018.

Financial Service clients, in particular investment banks, have been eagerly awaiting the launch of both the Level 6 Financial Services Professional programme (including CISI, CBI and CFA qualifications), and the Level 7 Professional Accountant programme (including ACCA, ICAEW and CIMA qualifications) as a way of converting their graduate programmes or supporting existing staff to participate in apprenticeships.

These programmes are a great option for business looking to:

1. Transition September 2017 graduates on to an apprenticeship part way through their programme

2. Redesign September 2018 graduate schemes into apprenticeships, which are currently being recruiting for

3. Scope September 2019 graduate-apprenticeship propositions that will be launching on campus next September

4. Offer to existing staff wishing to upskill, reskill or obtain an accreditation

BPP’s programmes and start dates are designed to support employers deliver both standards whichever option.

We have been working with a number of clients to map and redesign existing two-year (Financial Services graduate) and three-year (Finance graduate) schemes. This has looked at how induction, technical, soft skills, professional qualifications training and rotations could support the 20% off the job training requirement if converting these schemes to the Level 6 and Level 7 apprenticeships.

For businesses looking to convert existing staff on to these apprenticeships, outside of a graduate programme, we will also showcase how we are tailoring courses to align with typical employer study policies. We recognise that the 20% off the job training requirement is significantly more than a traditional professional qualification would entail - a big challenge in any sector.

This session will cover both Level 6 and Level 7, so please invite respective colleagues if ownership for each programme sits elsewhere in your business. Following the event there will be an opportunity to schedule a 1:1 with BPP or a meet and greet with key business stakeholders to review existing programmes should employers be interested in collaborating on either of these standards.

And last but not least, you could all stay for some networking opportunities and a mince pie or two afterwards!

We look forward to seeing you.
