Level 4 AAT Diploma in Accounting
I wanted to change my career and went to work with D.R.E & Co. Chartered Accountants, who put me onto this course to get all my qualifications. After I have finished studying at SCG I will do my charter training at university. This is a widely recognised qualification that you need if you want to be a Junior Accountant.
I enrolled on the part-time AAT bookkeeping course as a mature student and have found the teaching staff here superb as you get a lot of life experience from industry trained teachers.
