Milsted Langdon recently received a prestigious accreditation, having been recognised as an Approved Employer by the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA).

The ACCA Approved Employer programme recognises employers’ high standards of staff training, accountancy resources and development for ACCA members and trainees.

Milsted Langdon has been awarded gold level status in the Trainee Development stream of the Approved Employer programme. The stream recognises the learning opportunities the firm provides to employees working towards either ACCA qualification or the Certified Accounting Technician qualification.

To achieve gold level, the firm had to undergo a rigorous review of the learning and support it offers, focusing on study support and suitable practical experience.

The Approved Employer status, which was confirmed on 14 May, will be in place for three years after which the firm will go through a renewal process.

Milsted Langdon partner Gary Salter said: “We are delighted to receive this ACCA accreditation, which reflects the importance we place on developing our people to help them achieve their full potential.

“Our approach is to combine theoretical training with practical, hands-on experience, including the support and advice of colleagues, to help everyone who joins us to build a rewarding accountancy career.”
