All our school leaver and graduate programmes give you the ability to work towards a professional qualification, helping you succeed in your role and in your career.

Once you finish, you'll have formal accreditation, including those all-important letters after your name and membership of a professional organisation. A pretty good return to go alongside your enhanced skills and experience.

What you study and how you do it depends on which business stream you're in and what you decided on in your Training Agreement. We have a wide support network available to help you succeed throughout your training and beyond, including from your tuition provider, the Professional Qualifications team, your People Manager, the People Development team and of course the wider firm.
