The Professional Diploma covers financial team leader skills, including drafting financial statements for limited companies and complex management accounting tasks such as managing budgets and evaluating financial performance. This demanding qualification is designed for students who have recently achieved the Level 3 Diploma in Accounting (AAT) and who wish to become full Accounting Technicians. Ideally you will also have work experience in the sector.
AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualifications open up huge opportunities nationally and internationally. The qualifications are recognised throughout the finance world; from small local enterprises to the biggest multinationals, there is a demand for qualified accounting staff. The course offers progression onto AAT full membership, giving students professional recognition, allowing them to use the letters MAAT after their name.
All the UK chartered and certified accountancy bodies recognise the AAT accounting qualification and offer AAT members exemptions. Alternatively AAT Level 4 may gain exemptions on accounting finance related degrees at many UK universities.
