TaxAssist Accountants has taken its franchisee training programme online with the help of video technology.
The original scheme, which spanned six weeks, has been reorganised into a four-week virtual course. Six new investors have benefitted from it and completed their induction.
Samantha Skyring, the bookkeeping and accounting franchise’s Senior Training & Communications Manager, said:
“I am delighted that, with the help of the trainers and different technologies, our initial training courses now run smoothly virtually. Indeed, the course has worked so well, we envisage that parts of the course will be run this way long term, alongside face-to-face training.”
According to Samantha, running the training scheme virtually proved more cost-effective and less disruptive in terms of travel.
CIMA-qualified accountant, Jugdev Dhillon, joined TaxAssist for its first lot of online training courses. He said,
“The course was well-paced and informative, with good interactive learning material which ensured you understood the requirements of becoming a franchisee. I transitioned from permanent employee to contractor status in 2014, so setting up my own practice is the next logical step in my career.
“Having completed the initial course, I’m looking forward to fitting out my shop, meeting clients and building the Stafford practice near to my home in Stoke.”
TaxAssist’s Group Chief Executive Director, Karl Sandall congratulated the franchise’s coaching staff for reworking the course. He added,
“Our services are very much in demand as small businesses look to their accountant for help and guidance in these challenging times and we look forward to supporting them and their clients as they build up their practices.”
If you’d like to take advantage of TaxAssist’s new virtual training scheme, why not book yourself onto a Discovery Day to learn more about becoming a franchisee? You can find out about the opportunity on the business’s Point Franchise profile page or its website.
