Danielle Brown has received one of the top marks in the country in the Diploma for Accounting Technicians programme this year. Danielle studied on the Higher Level Apprenticeship Accounting course at Southern Regional College, Newry Campus.
Danielle secured employment with Cunningham and McPartland Accountants in Kilkeel to gain entry onto Accounting Technicians Ireland Level 5 Diploma For Accounting Technician Higher Level Apprenticeship (HLA) where she worked for four days per week and attended SRC for 1 day for classes. After her two year HLA course, she is being further trained by her placement company Cunningham and McPartland Accountants.
The 20 year old from Kilkeel commented “I had just finished my A-Levels at Kilkeel High School when I found the course online and after researching it further and speaking to my teachers, I thought it was the best option for me. The course covered a wide spectrum of the accountancy environment and I loved that I could earn as well as learn with a company in my own home town. It suited me really well that the course was also nearby and I didn’t have to travel to university or live in Belfast to study. Cunningham and McPartland are keeping me on and training me further for a new role so I’m really looking forward to that.”
Cunningham and McPartland said “We would like to congratulate Danielle on her outstanding achievement. We have enjoyed having Danielle with us over the past 2 years and wish her well for her future career.”
