We have opportunities for work placement available that your students may be interested in. At this time we are aware that many sixth form students are looking to secure work placements for the summer and we would like to offer them an opportunity to train with us.   St Mary's Accounting Services is a lively forward thinking firm of Chartered Certified Accountants in South East London, and we were a finalist at the National Council for Work Experience Awards in March 2012.

We are providing a SAGE LINE 50 COMPUTERISED ACCOUNTS TRAINING & ACCOUNTING WORK PLACEMENT in August 2012, that is geared to equip students with the necessary practical skills to complement their educational courses, assist with their UCAS points and enhance their employment skills.

We ran a similar program last summer, in which 16 sixth form students from three different schools attended the training and work experience session with our firm which gave them vital practical experience in using Sage 50 accounts software, and accounting duties in the real world. Enclosed is a feedback form which details the comments provided by the students and the common comments provided by their professional mentors within our organisation.

The programme will provide them with the following benefits and more:
•   Certification on completion of course & references attainable
•   Gain hands on experience & employment skills
•   A supportive framework that will help with any questions
•   Guidance on how to break into the job market and into the Accounting field
•   Trained by Chartered Certified Accountants, with experience in the working field

This programme is a tailored package which includes 2 days training in the computerised accounting software at a discounted rate of £150, and 2 weeks work placement for FREE.
The students will also have an opportunity to be put forward onto an Accounting or Business Admin..Apprenticeship programme. Apprenticeship programmes are an excellent way of gaining qualifications and workplace experience, where the apprentice will earn as they learn as well as gain practical skills from the workplace.

Should you have any questions, or would like to express your interest, please do not hesitate to contact Sarah Naughten at  or on 02072529331.
