Apprenticeships offer a funded route into a bookkeeping career, professional ICB membership, and higher accountancy qualifications. Age is no longer a barrier to becoming an apprentice and there is no time limit to complete an apprenticeship. Smaller businesses looking to employ an apprentice can get up to 95% of training costs paid by the government for new recruits or existing staff, and further funding is available in some instances.

ICB is an end-point assessor for the following apprenticeship standards:

Accounts/Finance Assistant (Level 2)

Assistant Accountant (Level 3)

Payroll Administrator (Level 3)
