School-leavers' programme scoops top award
KPMG's school-leaver programme has been voted best in category at this year's TARGETjobs National Graduate Recruitment Awards.
KPMG's school-leaver programme, and its education outreach programme 'Access All Areas', were up against stiff competition, including EY and Barclays. It was chosen (by a poll of thousands of students) for its “consistent development of the individual” and “real investment in the promotion of its initiatives to students in schools.”
The TARGETjobs Awards are the biggest graduate recruitment awards in the UK with the best school- leaver programme award judged by a panel of school-leavers and industry professionals. The award was presented by TV and radio presenter Jonathan Ross at a gala dinner at London’s Grosvenor Hotel on the 20th March. You can read more on the TARGETjobs awards here.
The course, which can be studied through Durham University Business School, is designed specifically for school leavers. It has a ground breaking approach that brings together the academic, practical and professional elements of accounting.
The six-year programme is a mix of part-time and full-time study, with salaried employment and a training contract with KPMG. As well as a Durham University degree (BSc Accounting), successful graduates also gain a professional chartered accountancy qualification (ACA) from the ICAEW.
