New course will put you on the fast track to top.

SOLIHULL College, one of the largest providers of accountancy training in the West Midlands, is set to launch a series of fast-track AAT qualifications.

The part-time programmes, starting in January, are aimed at people already working in accountancy or those looking to enter the profession.

In September courses quickly filled at the college, resulting in a number of students being unable to secure a place and therefore putting their qualifications back a year.

Enquiries have continued as it becomes clear that there is a shortage of skilled accountancy people to fill the current job vacancies.

Now, as part of the new Management and Professional Centre, the college is offering a unique opportunity for people to study either a Level 2 or Level 3 Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) via a fast-track route.

This means anyone who missed out in September will not lose any time and for those just starting out it will speed up the time taken in acquiring these qualifications.

Students can enter Level 2 without accountancy experience and with the college offering AAT up to Level 4, university level qualifications and a professional career are possible without the expense of going to university.

An added bonus for anyone already working in an accounts role is that the college may be able to offer these qualifications as part of an Apprenticeship route.

Solihull College is running an accounting open session next Tuesday, from 10am to 12 noon, so that anyone interested can explore the options. At the event people will be able to talk directly to tutors.
