Cottons goes back to school

James Melvin at a careers fair

It isn’t just teachers and pupils that went back to school this autumn as James Melvin and James Warwick have both been attending careers events in Rugby recently.

First off, James M spoke with 9 classes of pupils in Year 11 at Avon Valley School, describing the route that he has taken to becoming a Manager at Cottons as well as outlining alternative routes into the profession, such as apprenticeships.

The following week James M was back at his old school, Lawrence Sheriff, where he was joined by James W for a careers fair. The event was open to pupils in Years 10 through to 13 and James W was able to talk about his experiences as a Graduate Trainee and the exams that he has taken to become a Part-Qualified Chartered Accountant. The pupils were keen to learn more about what skills and qualifications are required to progress in a career in accountancy.

Cottons offer accredited training opportunities for school-leavers and graduates looking to work towards the AAT and ACA qualifications. For further information see the careers section of our website.
