We recognise that making the step from studying for your A Levels to working in a professional environment, or changing career direction, can be a daunting prospect for many. We therefore aim to make this transition as easy as possible by providing all the necessary training and support you’ll need to be successful.
As well as our first class professional training scheme we provide a range of ongoing career development opportunities designed to improve both your business awareness and personal effectiveness and to equip you with the skills you need to develop into a potential leader of tomorrow. Alongside your professional training and on-the job experience we provide a whole range of courses covering the latest accounting and auditing techniques, as well as the political and government framework in which we operate. You will also be able to attend seminars and presentations by colleagues keen to pass on their knowledge and expertise.
We’ll also provide you with a comprehensive support network which will include Managers who will support you in your professional and career development through your study progress and with any problems or difficulties you are experiencing. When you join we’ll also provide you with a ‘buddy’. This will be a more experienced trainee who will be on hand to answer any questions you have during those first few months and will help you settle into the NAO.
Of course, the big thing about our training scheme is that it leads to membership of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). We’ll do everything possible to help you get there.
