Training and development

As you will join KPMG with a graduate intake, you will embark on the first level of your Professional Qualification by either completing the ICAS Test of Competence or all but one of the ACA Empowered Certificate level papers. When you return from your final year at University you will pick up where you left off and have even more time to gain relevant work experience.

In addition to studying for a professional qualification, you’ll also gain access to The Academy which provides an innovative approach to training and development to bring out the best in you. Learning activities, active development experiences and interactive community initiatives are all part of what we call a networked learning community.
