PwC UK implements apprenticeship framework

PwC UK has offered 60 tax practice apprenticeships, implementing the government-sponsored professional services Higher Apprenticeship framework.

Trainees are expected to join PwC tax practice from July and will combine the job experience with classroom learning. The aim is to achieve a recognised professional services business qualification with the Association of Tax Technicians (ATT).  

PwC UK said students will also develop their business skills in areas such as managing performance, commercial awareness, and communications.

“We believe the Higher Apprenticeship will help a wider group of potential recruits gain access to professional services,” PwC partner and head of people Gaenor Bagley said.

The firm said it is also assessing the use of the framework in the firm’s advisory and assurance practices.
