The A-Level/8-4-4 Career Path
In case you're wondering: yes, you can have a great career without ever going to university. Many people who've passed their A-Levels choose to take the CPA/ ACCA Qualification.
The CPA/ ACCA is a three-year programme that provides you with the main skills you'll need for a career in accountancy. By studying for it with PKF in Eastern Africa, you not only get your course fees paid for, but you also earn while you learn. It's a very hands-on experience - you will find that what you do in the workplace often mirrors your college work, so you can put theory into practice. Of course, you have to work hard to balance your work and studying commitments, which can put you under some pressure. But you can also expect a lot of support from your team and manager - after all, they want you to succeed.
At PKF in Eastern Africa you can also expect a lot of varied, interesting assignments, as you work with a broad range of clients. Your team will encourage you to get involved at an early stage, so you may soon be assisting on audits and carrying out account jobs. Right from the start you'll be a valued member of the team.
If you want a truly rewarding career, but not the cost of going through university, then the A- Level scheme could be for you.
