Accounting Technician Apprenticeship

A National Apprenticeship leading to a Level 6 Advanced Certificate in Accounting

What is the Accounting Technician Apprenticeship?

The Accounting Technician Apprenticeship is a new pathway to a career in business, accountancy and finance, where apprentices are mentored through a two-year, work-based learning programme.

Accounting Technician Apprentices work four days a week with the employer and study one day a week with the local college, on a two-year contract.

Apprentices get paid a salary of at least €19,890 per annum and their college tuition is fully funded by SOLAS. The programme leads to a Level 6 QQI Advanced Certificate in Accounting.

The next intake for the Accounting Technician Apprenticeship will be for September 2021 and we will be opening online applications in early March.   

Be sure to check out our other great study options. We offer Full-time & Part-time Accounting Technician courses, as well as Online courses.
