The A level Accounting course team at Wyke is celebrating some excellent news. Last January, Ernst & Young, the third largest professional services firm in the world, established a link with the college.
After visiting Wyke, the firm offered summer placements to AS Accounting students on their “Smart Futures” scheme, a programme that centres around three weeks of valuable accountancy work experience at the company’s regional office in Leeds.
Two students, Ben Smith and Liam Priestman, took up this opportunity and thoroughly enjoyed their placements.
After impressing his placement supervisors, Liam has now been offered an apprenticeship with Ernst & Young to begin in September 2015. This advanced scheme is a fantastic opportunity for Liam and the news comes on top of his excellent exam result.
