Advice on accountancy firm employment post apprenticeship + AAT needed

Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hi all,

    The second time I'm writing as I accidently deleted the text so I'll keep it short.

    I am currently on an audit apprenticeship with a big accountancy firm studying the level 4 AAT qualification following studies and completion of my a levels. I have been 'enjoying' my current placement and would be happy to stay on if asked! (which there might be an opportunity to if the firm likes me to study CIPFA, ACCA or ACA).

    I want to be prepared for if my firm doesn't offer me a placement but I am having trouble knowing what to apply for as I'm looking for a firm that will fund profession qualification studies.

    When looking for other places I can only see 3 main options which are
    - apprenticeship (which I obviously don't want)
    - Graduate scheme (I am not a graduate but I would be doing pretty much the same thing as a graduate, (currently do the same as graduates on my apprenticeship)).
    - Internship (I'm not 100% sure what this means).

    It would be great if someone could provide any advice on where I should be looking at my current level.

    Many thanks!

    -- Can't seem to edit title but it should say advice needed rather than AAT needed
