The numbers add up for accountancy students

A new series of internationally-recognised accountancy courses begin at Telford College of Arts and Technology over the next few weeks – and they come highly recommended by past and present students.

A range of full and part-time Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) programmes are on offer this year, from level two qualifications to foundation diplomas. 

Evening and ‘fast track’ accountancy courses kick off on February 7, while the day programme begins on February 9. Anyone interested in finding out more is invited to TCAT’s open event on February 2, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm. 

“Financial management is at the heart of every business, and demand for accounting and finance skills is consistently high across all sectors of the local economy right now,” said TCAT lecturer Lin Edgington. 

“Our AAT qualifications are internationally recognised, and the courses are based on practical, real-world accounting knowledge that you can put to use from day one. They offer the qualifications which Shropshire employers want. 

“If you are currently in a finance role and are looking for a new challenge, AAT can certainly help you improve your career opportunities.

“And if you complete the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting, you can receive generous exemptions with all the UK chartered and certified accountancy bodies.”

A new level two book-keeping course begins at TCAT at the end of January – and comes highly recommended by Jamie Sterry, a finance officer at Age UK in Shrewsbury (pictured)

He said: “I found that the course to be extremely educational and well thought out. At times it has been challenging, but with the help from the tutors and learning in a nice atmosphere I have been able to overcome this. 

“I feel that after completing this course it will definitely help me progress my career onto the next level, and I have TCAT tutors to thank for that.” 

Caroline Partridge, from Newport-based devProcess, has been taking a day out of work to study the AAT level two foundation course at TCAT. 

She said: “It is time well spent. Self-study is required at home, but the day at college definitely enhances learning. Our tutors are professional and supportive. They ensure that we are ready to sit the exams.” 

Lin Edgington added: “If you are looking for a new challenge or a more rewarding career, AAT qualifications can provide the opportunity, whatever your age – helping you develop the knowledge and practical skills that employers value.”
