Training will be provided – for what is an alternative route to obtaining a CA qualification – through ICAS’s Edinburgh offices and the FTC’s offices in Glasgow, through the Modern Apprenticeship scheme.

The studies can be undertaken in the day or in evening classes or through distance learning.

Mark Allison, ICAS director of education said the joint agreement with the FTC has been set up to increase the training provision for AAT students throughout Scotland.

‘We hope that this collaboration with FTC will result in a significant increase in the number of AAT students progressing on to CA training,’ he added.

Clare Morley, the AAT’s director of education and training said her institute was delighted with the agreement: ‘ICAS and FTC will be able to expand the provision of accountancy training to a wider number of Scottish school leavers without them needing to take a university degree.’
