South Devon College held an Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) information evening for those interested in an accountancy career or looking to enhance the financial skills of their staff.
As well as some festive mulled wine and mince pies, employers and those thinking of gaining or improving their accountancy qualifications learnt more about AAT accountancy courses at South Devon College, as well as hearing about the benefits of the qualifications from an employer's point of view.
Maggie Breton, who co-ordinates the AAT courses at the college, will gave details of the range of courses from Level 2 to Level 4, as well as the apprenticeships available in accounting.
This will be followed by Chris Jones and John Best, partners at Best Accountancy Services, who talked about 'The Power of AAT' and its value to employers both in the finance sector and in any companies. There were representatives on hand from local accountancy businesses, ACCA and college staff to offer advice and guidance to current and potential students looking for a career in accountancy.
Demand for spaces on all the college's AAT courses is very high and in response the college has put on an extra courses at Level 3, and Level 4. Both still have a few spaces available. Anyone interested who already has a Level 2 qualification in accountancy should telephone 01803 540600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit the college website at www.southdevon.ac.uk
