Progression Opportunities

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) are the world's largest professional body for qualified Accounting Technicians and people employed in a variety of accounting and financial roles. It is also a popular route to qualified chartered status. In fact it is sponsored by the main chartered bodies (ICAEW; CIMA; ICAS; CIPFA) who work with AAT to ensure that the course meets the necessary standards and thus gains valuable exemptions from these chartered bodies.
