Link: KPMG denies Scots deal is ‘poaching’

Applicants will need 24 UCAS points and a grade B or above in GCSE Maths. The program was originally launched in 2001 and the next intake of school-leavers will be made in September.

Thirty places are up for grabs and those chosen can become either fully qualified chartered accountants or chartered tax advisers

Students will follow a five-year training programme, including a week’s intensive training every month and a revision course provided before every exam.

Ongoing support is also provided by a mentor, another student who has been with KPMG for a year or more.

Keith Dugdale, director of recruitment and resourcing at KPMG, said: ‘The scheme offers an exciting alternative for bright A-Level students who decide that university is not for them. We’re looking for students who are self-motivated with lots of enthusiasm and drive, along with a mature attitude and a keen interest in business.’
