Hello everyone,

Just wondering if anyone knew of any courses worthwhile doing alongside my AAT ?
Im currently doing the ECDL should be finished soon. As i dont work in an accounting environment, anything to bolster my c.v would really help.

I looking to do the ACCA after AAT so any courses o help with that would also be good.

Thanks in advance for any help.

    It really depends on what you want to do. I've heard the ATT course is very worthwhile (equivalent to AAT but tax) but it may be a heavy workload to complete this and AAT at the same time.

    Hi Steve

    What is it you would like to do once you have completed your studies (i know what would seem a daft question)

    I would love to finally start my own practice. But i would also like to spend a few years on the square mile. Work for one of the top 4 if that helps...lol...

    Well id advise try to get working in finance as soon as possible, mybe try volentry work for local council - but like gem i wouldn't advise another course on top as this is pretty heavy going.

    Good luck with your studies and please feel free to pm at anytime :001_smile:

    I wouldn't recommend ATT until after AAT. You may not meet entry requirements at the moment and it is considerably tougher than AAT level 4.

    I would just focus 100% on gettin that finance role rather than overloading yourself with study. The 'Big 4' have an amazing reputation and serious CV market value so do a bit of research into what they look for and approach them? Worst they can do is tell you to **** off.
