Accounting technicians are skilled staff employed in jobs ranging from clerks to accounts department managers. They are increasingly required in industry and commerce, so if you have AAT qualifications at any level your career prospects will be excellent. You could also continue your studies by progressing on to the professional examinations of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), or the Association of Chartered Accountants (ACCA).
Additional independent study outside of College will be regularly expected. The professional examinations require a high standard of preparation and considerable commitment if success is to be achieved. In addition to the course fees you will also be required to pay £230 to cover the costs of books, enrichment activities and trips. The course fee covers the cost of one exam for all units, so re-sits will need to be paid for if qualifying conditions have not been met. An additional £50 resource fee will also need to be paid on induction.
