Kaplan LogoLiverpool Chamber is delighted to be working with Kaplan Financial to promote Accountancy and Financial Services to our Young Chamber at New Heys Business and Enterprise College.

Kaplan Financial have been a leading provider of accountancy tuition in the UK for the last 50 years. They are offering GCSE and A Level students at Liverpool Business and Enterprise colleges the stunning prize of an AAT qualification and subsequent professional qualification (in ACCA, CIMA or ICAEW) to the winner of their Kaplan Financial Scholarship competition. Members of our New Heys Young Chamber are helping to pilot the scheme and participate.

In preparation for the competition, ten YC students will this week visit the Kaplan offices in Old Hall Street. They will get a taste of financial training and career development and take part in a business challenge. This will form the basis of a much larger Kaplan/Young Chamber challenge later in the year. They will also be introduced to the Scholarship Competition and be drafting their application forms to participate.

Jaine Davies, Business Development Officer at Kaplan noted “We’re delighted by schools’ response to the Scholarship programme but not surprised. We’ve got so many eager youngsters who are desperate to get into an Accounts role in business. If any local businesses want to train young people – and get their accountancy training paid for by government – we can help!”

“Working with the Young Chamber is a fantastic way of attracting more young people to our profession and opening their eyes to the fantastic opportunities available to them.”

Stay tuned for more details on Young Chamber’s work with Kaplan Financial – and their day at the Office – next week.
