Cameron joined our team as a Payroll and VAT apprentice over a year and a half ago and has since been studying and working to complete his Level 3 AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) apprenticeship. We caught up with Cameron to find out why he thinks apprenticeships are so valuable.

 

Why did you choose to do an apprenticeship?

To earn and learn! It’s great to gain knowledge of working practice.

 

What is involved in your apprenticeship?

My AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) apprenticeship involves three levels – 2,3 and 4 – after which I will be MAAT Qualified, and further education is available to then become Chartered.

 

From college I gain an understanding of how to complete tasks both in my role and across other areas of the business.

 

How does Chuhan & Singh support your apprenticeship?

They pay my education fees, track my exam portfolio, and keep me on track with goals.

 

What do you hope to get out of your apprenticeship?

I’ll get a valuable qualification, as well as the knowledge, skills and behaviours needed to become a working professional.

 

What have been the biggest challenges you’ve faced through your apprenticeship so far?

It’s been difficult to gather evidence needed to complete my portfolio.

 

What are your career goals?

To gain knowledge and experience in all areas then specialise in what I feel what I am most knowledgeable and most comfortable doing.

 

How will your apprenticeship help you reach these goals?

My apprenticeship aids me in my skills and knowledge and will allow me to put these into practice confidently and competently.

 

What would you say to anyone considering an apprenticeship?

If you can find a field which excites and interests you, I would definitely say to do one. It means you have the work experience and knowledge to improve your career and skills.
