Despite having four offers from top Russell Group universities, one of our Sixth Formers has chosen to start her career straight after A Levels.
Megan Cherrington (EDH UVI) has gone through a highly competitive application process, and heard recently that she has been accepted onto KPMG's School Leavers' Programme. The five stages of the assessment took 3 months to complete, but Megan eventually received the good news when she was out at a restaurant, celebrating her father's birthday!
Megan's training with KPMG will start as soon as she joins. The six year programme offers trainees the opportunity to gain work experience as well as a university degree and a professional accounting qualification - all entirely funded by KPMG. This is a powerful combination which allows trainees to start earning and building their career as soon as they finish school or college. Megan says she's "very excited about starting a new career path with something a little different from taking the normal route to university!"
Mrs. Weston has already asked Megan to come back next year to talk to the Sixth Form about the programme and how to apply for it!
