    Just wanting any information from anyone who has achieved a place with PWC, straight out of school/ sixth form and going down that route instead of a degree.

    - Whats it like on this program with PWC, obviously it will be hard work, but whats it like?

    -'Assurance' or 'Deals' PWC offer both; I understand the former to do with looking into the inner workings of a business, and the latter focusing more on mergers, aquisitions and takeovers. Just wondering if you have any more information from your experience which you could give

    Thanks

    Hey there,

    Do you know exactly what you want your apprenticeship to be on and where?

    Milkround have loads of apprenticeships with PWC. I can't say how they are as I haven't done one myself, I can give you some more information about PWC if that helps!

    Over the past four years PwC has quadrupled its recruitment of school-leavers. The firm recruited 165 school- leavers in 2015, the majority joining PwC’s higher-apprenticeship scheme to work in tax, consulting, assurance or deals. The starting salary for PwC apprentices in London is about £20,000, compared with £28,000 for graduates. Once they have qualified, there is no distinction between the apprentices and the 1,500 graduates the firm hires each year — and no limits on how far they can progress.

    PwC’s higher apprentices need at least the equivalent of three Cs at A level (240 Ucas points) to work in tax and slightly higher (280 Ucas points) to work in consulting, assurance or deals. They have the potential to qualify four years after joining the company — faster than the graduates, who spend three years at university, followed by three years of work and study.

    Thanks very much for your help.

    Ideally I'm looking for the 'deals' side of things!
