Taha Ayyaz has chosen a progression route that is slightly different to the traditional university route. He applied and was accepted onto the PwC Flying Start degree programme. On completion of his A level studies in Business, Chemistry and Mathematics in 2016, he has joined this programme to get both the university experience and the apprenticeship experience.
As well as studying for a degree at the University of Nottingham, Taha will complete work placements in the PwC offices during his second, third and fourth years of study, getting paid for the 3-month placements he does. He will come out of this programme with Association of Chartered Certified Accountants accreditation, ready to go straight into employment as a chartered accountant.
“I’m hoping to work at a Big Four accountancy firm in the future and I think this PwC Flying Start programme can help get me there. I’ve had great support from my teachers during my time at College, as well as support from my academic coach and all the support staff in the library and in Careers. The resources available – such as Tyber, Moodle (virtual learning resource) and workshops – have also helped me to achieve.”
