Hi guys. Hope everyone's staying safe during lockdown.
Does anyone have more information on the PwC school leaver program and higher apprenticeships? The website seem kind of vague imo
What happens i.e whats the progression route to become qualified through the school leavers etc.?
Thanks

This would depend on the area in which you want to work in PwC, for example there are different ways to get qualified when working in tax/audit than technology etc. What career would you like to get into?

Not 100% sure tbh. I want to go into accounting not technology but don't really know what area yet

Alright, so look into Tax, Audit, Consulting or Deals. You can learn more about the different school and leaver careers here.
For Tax you would need to complete ACA examinations to qualify as a chartered accountant. You can work in Corporate Tax, Indirect Tax etc.
All of this information for Tax can be found here.

Will all the areas lead to the same qualification, to the ACA (apart from technology)? Also, how do you know which area you want to go into without having any experience in them? For example, in the KPMG 360 course, you do the AAT Lvl 3&4 and then specialise in an area but in PwC you pick an area before you start. Is that right and how do you just pick without acc doing them first?

You will study for a professional qualification for Audit, Consulting, Tax and Deals.
It's completely up to you. Look into each and see which one appeals to you most.
You need to choose one and then you can transfer after completing the relevant qualifications. Once you’ve gained your qualifications and experience in one of these teams listed above, you could transfer to one of the other teams, where you’ll gain more experience, insights and coaching, as well as time out to study for your exams.

Hi guys, was just wondering if anyone's completed their background check yet and what you did for the transcript documents if you are still waiting for your A-Levels? I was told it would have to be put on hold until I get them on August 13th?

Although not PwC, on the EY careers website there’s something called the pathfinder which could give you an idea on what service line would suit you best.

(And whilst you’re at it, have a look at the EY apprenticeships. Personal opinion is they’re very good!)
