Apprenticeships: Information for Parents and Teachers
KPMG’s Apprenticeship Programmes offer a refreshing alternative to the traditional university experience. There’s loads of support available at every step of the application process too – from making that initial decision to knowing what to bring along on the first day.
If you’re a parent or teacher and would like to find out more about our programmes, we’ve created this part of the site to answer any questions you might have.
What are the benefits?
As well as great support, excellent training and real responsibility, our apprentices enjoy a wide range of benefits and rewards, including:
- Access to ‘The Academy’, our unique learning community
- Ongoing professional training

Why do you recruit apprentices?
Quite simply, because they’re our future. Plus, research shows there’s a growing pool of talent who are considering starting a career straight after their A-Levels or Scottish Highers rather than going down the traditional university route. We think these people have just as much potential to succeed with us as our graduate trainees.
Our drive to recruit trainees into KPMG is part of our long-term recruitment strategy to attract talented people from all walks of life. We’re really proud to say our trainees come from all kinds of diverse backgrounds – so you can rest assured that anyone you know will fit in just fine here.
In February 2014, KPMG won 'The Best School Leaver Programme Award' at the TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment awards.
What are the programmes?
We've created our Programmes with school and college leavers in mind.
