Accountancy firm Bishop Fleming has been recognised among some of the largest organisations in the UK for its apprenticeship programme.

The firm has been ranked 14th in the Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers list for 2022, which seeks to showcase the very best apprenticeship programmes over the previous 12 months.

Co-developed by the Department for Education, the national league table recognises leading apprenticeship employers for their overall commitment to employing apprentices, their creation of new apprenticeships, the diversity of their new apprentices, and the progression of their apprentices onto further apprenticeships and employment.

Partner and people director, Anna Averis, said: “We are delighted to receive this recognition for our leading apprenticeship programme which is now among the very best in our sector. As one of only a few accounting firms to have been awarded Employer-Provider status, we are able to develop and deliver our own tailored apprenticeship programme. This is now delivering real results and is integral to our wider growth ambition.”
