ICAEW President Fiona Wilkinson welcomed AstroBank to the family of ICAEW authorised training employers, noting that the ACA is a very high-level qualification which can open up countless opportunities worldwide for its holders in the fields of accounting, finance and business. “We are delighted to begin our partnership with AstroBank. The high-quality services offered by the bank are inextricably linked to the quality of its employees. We are confident that trainees within the organisation will receive a high level of vocational training, which, combined with their academic studies, will allow them to achieve their full potential.”, she stated.
