3 Ways to Enjoy Self-Improvement as a Graduate Accountant

Are you a graduate accountant looking to attain Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) membership? The AdvDip(CPD) ACCA Strategic Professional Level course at the University of Bolton in Greater Manchester is the next step to becoming ACCA exam qualified. As a Gold-status ACCA Approved Learning Partner, we are one of the top UK universities for graduate accountants in training. In fact, we’re No.1 in the UK for Teaching Quality and Student Experience*, and students have even voted us No.1 for Student Satisfaction for the third year running!**

Our student-first approach allows us to focus on you and your needs, helping you enjoy self-improvement and career growth. If you want to make the most of your ACCA accountancy training with us, here are some tips to unlock your potential:

1. Work on your soft skills
As well as improving your practical skills, it’s also important to develop your soft skills, including verbal and non-verbal communication, teamwork, leadership, and people management skills. Accountants can work in a range of settings, but all roles require interaction with others, and usually multiple departments and stakeholders.

This is why we encourage self-improvement through reflecting on your own practice, and why we promote both group and independent study.

2. Make the most of our Employability Team
We have a dedicated Employability Team, who will be on hand to support your career ambitions throughout your studies. From providing careers advice and securing work placements in the Greater Manchester region to assisting with CV skills, we can get you workplace-ready!

To take full advantage of the services on offer, try to have career ideas in mind early on. This way, we can work with you to establish goals and objectives, and advise on pathways to your chosen graduate accountant jobs.

3. Immerse yourself in the graduate community
When you join the University of Bolton, you’ll be studying alongside the highest calibre of graduate accountants. Not only do we encourage students to learn from our highly experienced teaching staff, but we also encourage them to share ideas and experiences with their peers. This is a great opportunity to build your professional network, so fully immerse yourself in the Postgraduate community and spend time getting to know your fellow ACCA accountancy trainees.
