Higher Apprenticeship in Professional Services - Tax

Higher Apprenticeship in Professional Services - Work-based programme

It is closely aligned with the Association of Taxation Technicians examinations, which means the apprentice will achieve a professional qualification as part of the apprenticeship.

With a mix of exam training and "on the job" skills, learners will finish the Higher Apprenticeship in Professional Services with both the technical knowledge and wider business skills to make a real difference to business performance. Training can be fully funded for 16-18 year olds and partially funded for 19-24 year olds.

Apprenticeships delivered by Tolley®Exam Training combine innovative learning materials with excellent levels of tutor support, and are designed to ensure that both learners and employers get the maximum benefit from being well trained in a Professional Qualification relevant to the job role.

This Apprenticeship has been designed by employers to reflect the range of technical, business and soft skills employers need. As well as the ATT qualification, it includes a blend of broader business skills and competence required in professional services, including project management and managing relationships.

To apply for an apprenticeship learners need to be aged 16 or older, and: a UK resident living in England for the past three years, an EU citizen, or have the right to work in the UK/EU.
