Earn as you learn on an innovative and practical route to a career in accountancy

What is the Accounting Technician Apprenticeship?

The Accounting Technician Apprenticeship is a practical route to a career in accountancy where you will earn while you learn on a two-year, fully funded programme.

You get paid at least €17,797 a year and pay no tuition costs!

We have employers from industry, practice and the public sector, offering two-year contracts on this National Apprenticeship programme.

You will work four days a week with the employer and study one day a week with a local college, as you complete our in-demand qualification.

You will put your college learning into practice every day, as you go from complete beginner to fully qualified Accounting Technician.

You will graduate as a fully qualified Accounting Technician with a Level 6 qualification, two years’ solid work experience and a pathway towards further study in accountancy or business.
