I FELT LIKE THERE WAS A CLEAR OUTCOME WITH WHAT I COULD DO WITH THE CAREER ACADEMY'S COURSES!

Almost immediately, it was the AAT Accounting Technician Pathway Program that caught her eye. ‘It offered me the accounting theory that I needed, with the option to add “Accounting Technician” status to my name, along with applying all my theoretical knowledge into practice through the use of accounting software such as Xero. It was also a lot more value for money than other courses I had researched.
