Practical training is key

AAT PQs will give themselves a huge advantage in the jobs market if they integrate their study for the qualification with practical accountancy training, says Future Connect’s Umar Tariq.

Future Connect was recently shortlisted in two categories at the PQ magazine award. And, when we visited one of its AAT’s had just landed a management accounting job for £42,000. This is not an unusual event either, since September last year over 273 of its AAT trainees have landed a job, many their first. Tariq stressed that for many of its students this was their first accountancy role, and he knows that it is the practical training it provides that gets them the jobs!

Future Connect uses a panel of experts to ensure all its training is in line with the latest legislative changes. By combining expertise from practice and academia it ensures all bases are covered too.
