The Accountancy Professional Level 7 Apprenticeship develops the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in a finance career. Apprentices gain an internationally recognised master’s degree qualification in Finance and Credit as part of the finance apprenticeship alongside the latest thinking from industry experts.
