Vitacress introduces new finance development programme

Vitacress is excited to announce the introduction of a new training scheme offering an accountancy tuition programme at the highest level, similar to those usually offered by the professional services and accounting firms.

Partnering with Babington and Grant Thornton, this scheme will go above and beyond the traditional accountancy training as it aims to combine leadership, problem solving and critical thinking with technical skills. It will make use of the Government’s apprenticeship levy fund and offer each apprentice a buddying system with a tailored plan for personal growth as well as professional development.

Vitacress' Group Finance Director, Ashley Cooper comments; “At Vitacress we want to offer an apprenticeship that will benefit students by providing a well-rounded programme that prepares them for an exciting future in finance at Vitacress. This is a great example of our values in action and reflects how important it is to invest in our people.”

Both experts in their field, Babington is one of the UK’s leading learning & development organisations supporting over 7,000 learners, whilst Grant Thornton is one of the world’s largest organisations in Tax, Audit and Advisory.

Tim Sutcliffe, Head of New Client Relationships at Babington, comments: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Vitacress as they invest in the development and upskill of their finance team, through the launch of an accountancy apprenticeship programme. We look forward to working closely with Vitacress and our partners Grant Thornton to develop future finance leaders together.”

Jim Rodgers, Partner at Grant Thornton, says: “Attracting and retaining talent is key to building a world class finance team. Grant Thornton is delighted to be supporting Vitacress leverage the Apprenticeship Levy to invest in its development of a pipeline of finance leaders.”

The scheme offers support from practitioners, along with access to online resources such as webinars and seminars, and supports on-the-job training that will help accelerate the completion of training. The scheme will offer improved career development and a choice of qualification pathways – ACCA, ATT or CIMA.
