If you’re interested in a finance career, an apprenticeship is a great way to get into the market. You will achieve a Diploma in Accounting with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), gaining various advanced skills, including double-entry bookkeeping, understanding non-current assets, preparing final accounts, cost and revenue and professional ethics. Job roles in accountancy can vary, with capable accountants essential in all businesses and organisations, meaning you could work in any industry, applying your skills to any business type. Progression routes are available to higher qualifications, which can lead to specialised roles in accounting.
The best part about studying at South Devon College is the tutors, I had a brilliant AAT tutor that was very supportive and helpful. The College was a nice environment to be in, I felt that it was sociable, but not intimidating. My advice for those looking to study AAT would be to study hard and you will achieve things that you didn't think were possible!Tasmin Reid
