Key pillars of the KPMG scheme.

* Around 75 school leavers will be cherry-picked from across the UK to begin a six-year programme starting from September.

* Students who complete it will gain a degree and become fully qualified chartered accountants. * They will also be paid a salary throughout the six-year-period. Remuneration will start at pounds 20,000 and rise each year. * KPMG will pay the full university and professional tuition fees for each student. * Students are not compelled or contractually obliged to stay at KPMG on completion of the programme.

* The scheme has been developed with Durham University and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW). * During the degree phase, which will last for four years, the students will study at Durham University Business School and gain practical industry experience at KPMG. * The scheme aims to bridge the gap between academia and industry and make higher education more affordable for school leavers.
