Exam success at Deloitte

How can we help you succeed?

At Deloitte we are committed to helping you achieve your definition of success by providing high quality learning and support programmes, ensuring you have the knowledge and skills you need to advance your career.

What framework is in place to help you achieve your ambitions?

We have defined Learning Pathways to provide planned learning interventions at each stage of an individual’s career:

  • Career pathways set out the expected progression path from associate to partner
  • Development pathways show the shifting emphasis on the shared competency areas, as you develop your career in Deloitte
  • Learning pathways focus on integrated professional and technical training programmes, designed to map key learning and support programmes to each stage of your career

Examples of these programmes include:

  • Induction programmes
  • Technical learning
  • Professional skills courses
  • Accredited management development programmes
  • Leadership development programmes
  • E-Learning programmes, certified by Harvard University
  • Professional qualifications/further study
Career progression

Roles and responsibilities in Deloitte are structured to allow graduates to gain a wide range of experience, progressing through the grades as quickly as possible. 

Some graduates progress to Assistant Manager level after completing their qualifications. Others choose to stay working in practice, continuing with their specialisation. Some join Deloitte clients who they worked with during their contract, taking up positions as financial controllers or tax advisors, sometimes working their way up to CXO level. Others transfer internally to experience other areas of interest, often continuing their studies. We also love welcoming back former associates who re-join Deloitte having taken a year or two out to travel the world!
