"There are two training programmes. The first is an internal one run by RSM where you meet with other grads from all of the offices and develop your business knowledge and skills (presentation, interpersonal etc). The second is the training for the ACA qualification, which is run externally through a university. This is where you go to train for your exams."
Graduate, Swindon
"The introductory training for graduates is thorough and there is a broad range of more general training available that can be requested. The department-specific training is less structured as the type of training needed is different from the wider company."
Consulting, Graduate, London
"We have quarterly tax updates to keep us up to date with the new legislation that comes into play. This is helpful and gives us a chance to learn new skills. I also attend college on a fairly regular basis when undertaking my professional qualification. This has helped me to build on existing skills but also learn new things. There are a range of other events and learning opportunities available including soft skills etc."
Graduate, Leeds
"Internal training courses are very well run and organised, although the location can be a bit of pain unless you live in the south. The external training in college for the ACA exams is extremely good. The tutors are excellent and the pace and format of the course is very well suited for the exams."
Graduate, Liverpool / Chester

"The internal training was very useful because I had no background accounting knowledge. The AAT training was interesting, but felt a bit rushed since we had lessons for a week and were then examined within two weeks. There was no option to resit the exam."
