CIPFA teams up with AAT to deliver new apprenticeship programme

9 Oct 17

CIPFA has teamed up with the membership organisation Association of Accounting Technicians to deliver a new apprenticeship programme.

The programme, designed within the CIPFA Education and Training Centre (CETC), will provide students at all levels with the combined expertise of both professional bodies.

Students will be taught by a CIPFA qualified tutor with public sector finance experience at the CIPFA training centre in London.

It will take students through the initial training of AAT’s Advanced (level 3) and Professional (level 4) Diplomas in Accounting to CIPFA’s public sector finance professional qualifications.

 “Public sector accountants are the bedrock of the services we all rely on and it is vital, therefore, that tomorrow’s public finance professionals have access to the best available training today,” CIPFA chief executive Rob Whiteman said.

“This new scheme will deliver highly-skilled accounting employees into public sector companies throughout the length and breadth of the country,” said Mark Farrar, chief executive at AAT.

“We look forward to closely working with CIPFA to help nurture the next generation of talent in this sector,” he added.
