More apprenticeship success for Armstrongs

Jul 27, 2021 | News

Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber Training is celebrating the success of another accountancy apprentice with award winning chartered accountancy firm, Armstrongs.  

Ashleigh Tucker has passed her final Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) exams to become a fully qualified accountant.

As a leading provider of apprenticeships and business-to-business training courses in Coventry and Warwickshire, Chamber Training has a strong track record of supporting businesses to design and deliver a plan of learning that meets their specific needs.

Apprenticeships are designed around the requirements of employers and enable businesses to grow their own talent and become more productive.

Ashleigh Tucker joined Armstrongs in 2017, embarking on her accountancy apprenticeship with Chamber Training. She quickly progressed through her assistant accountant apprenticeship at levels 2 and 3 before seamlessly progressing and succeeding with higher level study as a professional accounting technician at Level 4.

She is based at the firm’s Coventry office as part of the accounts team and will continue to further her career through the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

Commenting on becoming a qualified accountant, Ashleigh said: “The apprenticeship route has definitely been the best option for me.  I have enjoyed the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a professional firm with the support from a structured training platform at Chamber Training.

“Becoming a fully qualified accountant whilst working in a job I love has worked far better for me than going to university and trying to pursue a career in accountancy afterwards.”

Fantastic achievements

Cheryl Stanley, Business Development Manager at Armstrongs added: “We are delighted with Ashleigh’s fantastic achievements.  She is a very driven member of the team and has worked extremely hard to gain her apprenticeship and qualifications.

“We have an established team of qualified accountants and developing apprentices which creates a workforce of talent. The Directors at Armstrongs formed a close working relationship with Chamber Training a number of years ago and we currently have eight apprentices.  They are at various levels of development from level 2 through to professional study. We are planning to take on another three apprentices in the near future. Our account manager at Chamber Training, Nicky Cheshire, understands our business and how we operate, which means that we are matched with the right people.”

Nicky Cheshire, Account Manager at Chamber Training, added: “We are delighted to have been able to help and support Ashleigh with her apprenticeship training. It is always a pleasure to see our apprentices grow in confidence and thrive in their roles. We wish her every success for her future development at Armstrongs.

“We are currently working in partnership with a wide range of accountancy firms across Coventry and Warwickshire to provide a structured programme of training enabling businesses to develop qualified accountants. If a company are seeking to recruit an apprentice or train new staff, we would love to hear from them.”
