FOLLOWING the popularity of its AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) programme, South Devon College is offering Fundamental units of the ACCA (Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) professional qualification from September 2014 so those who have completed their AAT Level 4 Diploma can progress in their accountancy career through to Chartered status.
There are two information and advice sessions for anyone interested: On Wednesday, September 3 from 9am to 11am at the South Devon College Management Centre, Battle Road, Heathfield, and on Thursday, September 4 September from 5pm to 8pm at the College's Vantage Point campus, Long Road, Paignton.
All the courses will be delivered at the college's Management Centre at Heathfield by Hania Lee and David Stephens (pictured). Hania is a Fellow of the ACCA who now runs her own accountancy business, and David Stephens who also took the AAT qualification and then progressed to CIMA (Chartered Institute of Management Accountants). He has a wealth of teaching experience on AAT, CIMA and ACCA courses.
The F6 Taxation is a 10-week course starting on Friday, September 19, with the exam in December at either Plymouth or Bristol ACCA exam centres. The other two units will be delivered over nine weeks each on Thursdays from January 8, 2015, leading up to the exams in June.
Maggie Breton, programme co-ordinator for the accountancy programmes, said: "I'm delighted that the college can now increase its portfolio of accountancy qualifications and provide an excellent progression route which can lead eventually to Chartered accountant status. The ACCA is a very well known and respected qualification. The team is looking forward to teaching the first units from September."
