CIPFA and AAT create apprenticeship pathway
09 October 2017
CIPFA and AAT have teamed up to provide complete public finance apprenticeship pathway. What they want to create is a seamless apprenticeship programme, which makes a lot of sense.
Designed within the CIPFA Education & Training Centre (CETC), the apprenticeship pathway will take students initially through AAT’s Advanced (Level 3) and Professional (level 4) Diplomas in Accounting and then all the way through CIPFA’s established public sector finance professional qualifications.
Students joining the scheme will benefit from having all their classes taught at the CIPFA training centre in London, by a CIPFA qualified tutor with public sector finance experience.
CIPFA CEO, Rob Whiteman said: “By collaborating with AAT we can now take public finance apprenticeship students from the first steps along their career pathway all the way to being Chartered Public Finance Accountants (CPFA).”
AAT’s CEO Mark Farrar said: “We are fully committed to being at the heart of apprenticeship solutions that can benefit the accountancy sector – from the perspective of both student and employer.”
