Accounting Technician Apprenticeship Accepting Expressions of Interest Now!

The Accounting Technician Apprenticeship, launched in September 2017, is a new pathway to a career in business, accountancy and finance, where apprentices are mentored through a two-year, work-based learning programme.

Leading companies from practice, industry and public sector will be recruiting.

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

Apprentices get paid a salary of at least €19,000 per annum and their college tuition is fully funded by SOLAS. They are entitled to three weeks paid study leave per year.

The programme leads to a Level 6 QQI Advanced Certificate in Accounting.

For the Accounting Technician Apprenticeship Programme an apprentice will be attending (off-the-job training) at college one day and working with an employer four days during college term time (on the job training) on a weekly basis. Outside of college term an apprentice will attend work five days a week.

The (off-the-job training) day is set by the college but usually will be a Monday from 9:00am to 6.00pm and an employer will allocate appropriate work hours for the four days (on-the-job training) not exceeding the 37.5 hours per week (on and off the job training) required to be completed by the apprentice for the programme and their employment contract.

Additional home study will be needed to ensure success in the programme.

For the first year in college, the Stage 1 modules they will be studying are:

  • Financial Accounting
  • Taxation
  • Law and Ethics
  • Business Management

For the second year in college, the Stage 2 modules they will be studying are:

  • Advanced Financial Accounting
  • Advances Taxation
  • Management Accounting
  • Integrated Accounting Systems

This programme leads to a Level 6 QQI Advanced Certificate in Accounting.

Accounting Technician Apprentices will emerge with an in-demand accountancy qualification, two years of solid work experience and a world of opportunity ahead.

The next intake for this programme is September 2019. Confirmed locations include the following regions Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, Monaghan, Waterford and Wicklow.

Interested Leaving Cert students, school leavers, graduates and existing employees looking to start a career in accounting should select this programme.

New applicants interested in applying are invited to:

  • Log an expression of interest by contacting the Apprenticeship Team – email apprenticeship@accountingtechniciansireland.ie or call 01 6498191. Interested applicants will then be updated as soon as the online application opens.
