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.
