AAT is a trailblazer for apprenticeships
06 March 2017
AAT has been approved as an Apprentice Assessment Organisation (AOO) for the Accounting Trailblazer Apprenticeships, a government initiative designed to give employers the opportunity to take the lead in developing apprenticeship standards.
This announcement means that the ATT will deliver the end point assessments (EPAs) for the apprenticeships.
AAT CEO Mark Farrar said: “Given the acceleration of emerging technologies impacting the role of accountants, such as cloud computing and predictive software, the skillsets accountants needs are changing.”
He felt that Trailblazer apprenticeships can help provide employers access to the evolving talent they need to develop and grow.
AAT has been integral to the development of the new-style apprenticeships for both the Professional Accounting Technician and the Assistant Accountant. They are already attracting a lot of interest from employers, and delivery has started on behalf a variety of employers, including KPMG on its 360˚(degree) programme.
