Dodds celebrates New Year with exam success

Dodd & Co, Chartered Accountants & Business Advisers, are delighted to announce that two of their apprentice accountants have passed their final ACA exams (Association of Chartered Accountants), after sitting their final exams in November last year. Kate Brown and Dani Shortland both joined Dodd & Co as apprentices back in 2011 from school and have been working towards their professional qualifications ever since.

Kate, now aged 23, grew up in Wigton studying GCSE & A-Levels at Nelson Thomlinson School. Whilst studying for her ACA exams she has gained experience in many aspects of Dodd & Co’s
practice, including farming accounts, business accounts and is also a member of their Cloud Accounting teams. Kate decided that an apprenticeship was much more suited to her career path than university and wanted to start working and earning money as soon as possible!.

Dani, also aged 23, lives in Canonbie and studied her highers at Langholm Academy. During her time at Dodd & Co, Dani has specialised mainly in farming accounts whilst studying for her ACA exams over the course of her 6 years with Dodds. Dani said she chose an apprenticeship because she too wanted to earn her own money, but wanted to stay near to family and friends, as opposed to moving away for University.

Alison Johnston, Staff Partner at Dodd & Co, said “We are very proud of Dani and Kate and their achievements in the ACA exams. This once again proves the strength of our apprenticeship programme, and just how rewarding hard work and determination can be.” She added “Dodd & Co place great importance on being approachable and friendly to all our clients, but we never forget that clients expect us to have the knowledge and technical training to back it all up.”

Dodds are also celebrating the success of five more of their accounts trainees, who have passed further modules, taking them one step closer to their Chartered goal. This achievement marks another 100% pass rate for the professional exams so far. Holly Andrews, David Sanko and Jamie Dobson passed their Tax and Financial Management exam, whilst Lewis Dickinson and Fiona Wood passed their Financial Reporting and Audit exam. All of these ‘Doddies’ joined from school as apprentices or worked with us in conjunction with studying at university.
