AAT announces record growth

The Association of Accounting Technicians has announced an increase in membership and student figures bringing its combined total to over 100,000.

Membership figures at the AAT rose to 30,682, up 25% from 1998, while its student intake exceeded the 70,000 mark.

AAT chief executive Jane Scott Paul said: ‘The association is highly valued by employers, members, affiliates and students alike. The standards and quality of our competence-based qualifications mean they are in great demand and we expect to maintain these excellent levels of growth in 2000.’

The success in attracting members and students is partly attributable to the AAT’s vocational approach. This year’s launch of its new qualification, the NVQ/SVQ in Payroll Administration is expected to attract even more students.

According to AAT figures, 24,525 NVQ/SVQ certificates were awarded last year, up 21% on the previous year.

The English Institute, the Scots’ Institute, CIPFA and CIMA, four of the UK’s main accountancy bodies, sponsor the AAT.
