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.
