The Kaplan King: From AAT to CIMA, and fully Chartered

Tom Kelly is 24 years old, a Project Accountant and has fully Chartered status.

He started out as an AAT apprentice with Kaplan, but the last two years have seen him progress to the CIMA qualification and move on in his career.

When you tell them you have letters after your name, it definitely opens doors. 

The Kaplan King

Sticking with Kaplan throughout his accountancy voyage, Tom discovered that our teaching methods suited his approach to learning.

The continuity provided a level of comfort and consistency that enabled him to flourish “Kaplan provided excellent training throughout and their teaching styles suited me.”

The future after AAT

As an Accounting Technician, there are a range of fulfilling career routes available. You could even be eligible for exemptions from some higher learning units, meaning you can gain higher qualifications sooner than you might think and boost your earning potential.

Our studies show

That one third of all AAT students go on to chartered status.  

Like Tom, you may opt to study as an apprentice, rather than take the university route. With AAT you don’t need any previous experience or qualifications to start, just a willingness to learn!

This attitude has taken Tom all the way to being CIMA qualified.
