First Intuition, a leading accountancy training provider, is delighted to announce the return of its highly anticipated Accountancy Academy. Aimed at 15 – 19-year-olds interested in knowing more about a career in accountancy and finance, the free academy offers the opportunity to learn what it is like to work in an accountancy role and what is needed to get to a job in it.

Every year, First Intuition centres extend a warm invitation to local students to participate in their free Accountancy Academies. These academies serve as a valuable platform for aspiring individuals to gain a deeper understanding of the accountancy sector and the diverse job roles it offers, to help them identify if it is the right career path for them. Attendees will also learn about the different paths they can take into a career in accounting, how to put together a winning CV, and hear directly from accountancy employers.

The Accountancy Academy, spanning two days, is facilitated by First Intuition’s experienced tutors, each with expertise and experience working in accountancy roles. The academies have helped thousands of students learn more about the types of roles in the industry and determine whether a career in accountancy aligns with their skills and aspirations.

Key topics covered during the academy include:
