AAT and CIPFA are working together to develop a seamless study pathway for all aspiring finance professionals working in and with public services.
The AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) Qualification will equip you with the essential skills required to work in a range of accounting and finance jobs across the public and private sectors. The qualification is recognised globally and will provide you with a professional status to develop your career in accounting.
Fully qualified AAT members (MAATs) will have the opportunity to study CIPFA's Professional Accountancy Qualification through our AAT fast track entry route, with free exemptions (subject to AAT modules completed) and reduced membership fees – the ideal way to become a Chartered Public Finance Accountant (CPFA) and advance your career prospects.
We are an accredited training provider for the AAT qualifications and currently offer AAT level 2 in our Belfast training centre and AAT Levels 3 and 4 in Belfast, Birmingham and London.
In response to the introduction of the apprenticeship levy and the wider apprenticeship reforms, CIPFA will be offering the new accounting apprenticeship standards suitable for all aspiring public finance professionals.
This means that trainees will be able to study for the AAT qualifications as part of the new apprenticeship standards whilst utilising their employer’s apprenticeship levy.
Why study AAT with CIPFA?
- More face-to-face workshops than other training providers
- Training specifically tailored towards the public sector
- Qualified tutors with substantial public sector experience
