Free event to show the benefits of accounting qualifications

Employers from across the region are invited to a free event about the benefits of accounting qualifications at East Riding College in Bridlington next month.
The two-hour event on July 8 will feature a range of presentations and is aimed at both accounting firms and companies across all other sectors who would like to train their staff.
It is also for self-employed people and very small companies who would simply benefit from having bookkeeping and accounting skills within their business.
The event will be an opportunity to hear about the benefits of learning accountancy and the range of professional qualifications that are available.
There will also be some short presentations about how apprenticeships in accountancy are helping to fill skills gaps and create excellent career opportunities in the region.
The event follows the decision of the highly regarded Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) to allow the College to offer its qualifications in Bridlington for the first time.

Suzanne Eleftheriou, AAT co-ordinator at East Riding College, said: “The AAT qualifications we deliver provide an excellent foundation for a career in accountancy but they are also great for companies across all sectors.
“They enable you to increase profitability by learning about tax exemptions, cash flow and similar subjects, develop your personal skills and train your staff.
“This event is an opportunity to learn more about these qualifications, from simple bookkeeping to apprenticeships to higher level qualifications.”

Guest speakers include Andrew Roberts-Morris, AAT regional manager, Suzanne Eleftheriou, Rachael Owen, business development manager at East Riding College, and Evie Molloy, Yorkshire and Humberside Apprentice of the Year.
The event will run from 4pm to 6pm on Wednesday, July 8, at East Riding College, St Mary’s Walk, Bridlington.
