National Apprenticeship Week
Two Gordonians, both working for Evelyn Partners, both studying to be Associate Chartered Accountants but arriving there on different pathways. Abigail Jones and Inaara Oliver came back to school today as part of National Apprenticeship Week to talk to students about their journeys to the UK's seventh largest accountancy firm. Inaara obtained a first class degree in Accounting and Finance at Royal Holloway. Abi, who left Gordon’s with three A*s in Maths, Business Studies and Psychology, embarked on a Level 7 apprenticeship with Evelyn Partners. The two, who sit next to each other in the firm’s Guildford office, discovered by chance that they were both Gordonians! Today as well as providing students with an insight into their jobs and pathways into them, they reconnected with their former teachers Mark Eaden, Head of Maths and James Hamilton, Head of Business Studies and Economics.
