What are the pros and cons of grad schemes compared to jobs such as Accounts Assistant or Purchase Ledger Clerk whilst doing ACCA?
Not sure if I should apply for a grad scheme or accounting job Watch

To be honest, in your current situation there isn't much of a difference as you are: 1) studying and 2) working.
Both will earn you experience, opportunities for promotion and allow you to continue to study to become fully chartered.
Having said that, a graduate scheme with a reputable company is likely to have structured development program and exposure to different areas whereas with the 2 roles you specified, you will probably train in a couple weeks and be stuck in that role as that is all they expect you to do.
I think the question you should ask is what training, benefits and opportunities do the companies offer as the 2 roles might prove to be better than a grad scheme or the grad scheme might prove to be better than the 2 roles.
