USW partners with ACCA and Now Careers to provide scholarship for budding accounting and finance professionals

Now Careers, an Accounting and Finance recruitment company is providing budding professionals the opportunity to obtain a professional accounting qualification through the launch of the Now Careers Supporting Ambitions Scholarship. This will fund one finance professional for three years of study through the ACCA qualification at the University of South Wales (USW).

The announcement correlates with Professions Week this week, Monday 10th to Sunday 16th November, which focuses on increasing awareness of employment opportunities within different professions.

The scholarship will be based at USW’s City Campus in Newport, which is an ACCA Platinum Approved Learning Partner, the highest level of accreditation a tuition provider can obtain, and has 40 years of history teaching ACCA accredited courses at the University.

The ACCA Professional Qualification will cover all accounting disciplines and provides students with a springboard to advancing their career within Accountancy and Finance.

Ceri Leath, Director at Now Careers, Cardiff, said: “We are extremely excited to announce the Now Careers Supporting Ambitions Scholarship, it is a fantastic opportunity for an individual to progress their finance career and take them one step closer to achieving their ambitions.”

“Our partnership with ACCA and USW will ensure that the student will receive the best support whilst gaining an excellent qualification. The industry is full of opportunities and a professional qualification is essential to developing an individual’s skills and knowledge within the finance industry”.    

Dr Jared Davies, an Academic Manager at the University of South Wales, said: “This Scholarship will allow an AAT graduate to take their career to another level and will mean that funding will not be an impediment to a hard-working and talented student achieving their full potential. We are incredibly excited to have developed this partnership with NOW Careers and ACCA Cymru Wales.”     

Further details on how to apply for the sponsorship and eligibility criteria will be available in the New Year.
