National Accredited Accounting Courses Come To College

Fri, 2015-04-17 16:10

East Durham College has been accredited by AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) to deliver its accounting qualifications.

AAT is a professional qualification and membership body. Its qualifications give students practical skills to work in a range of finance and accounting roles.

People with AAT qualifications go on to work at all levels and in all sectors of the economy, with some running their own accountancy practices.

East Durham College will offer two different AAT courses: the AAT Level 2 Certificate in Accounting and the AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accounting.

Only AAT Approved training providers are allowed to deliver the AAT Accounting Qualification and they must first go through a rigorous verification process. Students should therefore only register with an AAT Approved training provider to ensure they receive the highest standard of teaching.

Commenting on the announcement Carina Tomlinson, Assistant Principal of Curriculum Operations at East Durham College, said: “We are delighted to be offering the AAT Accounting Qualification. “Our tutors bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in training accountancy students.”

Mark Farrar AAT Chief Executive said: “Every business needs well trained finance staff and an AAT qualification demonstrates to a prospective employer that you have the skills to perform well in such roles. “Gaining a recognised accountancy qualification with AAT is the first step into a professional finance career.”
