College shortlisted in accountancy awards

The College was shortlisted in the small training provider of the year category for its diverse offer and an increase in pass rates.  The courses are taught by tutors who work as accountants and help apprentices and people looking to retrain to gain a foothold in the profession. 

 Kate Harding, Head of Curriculum for Business and the Leisure Economy at the College said, “The courses are taught in a way that makes accountancy fun and interesting, with real life workplace examples and a supportive learning environment.  I’m so pleased the hard work of the staff and students to make our accounting provision a success has been recognised.  To have the provision commended by the AAT, the global leader in the industry is phenomenal.”

 The accountancy students supported the College’s nomination with a statement that said, “The environment provided by East Riding College is one of openness, progress, and development and it is felt by all of us students…Every person who decides to teach is taking responsibility for the academic growth of the students who come into their classes – and the tutors at East Riding College take their task to heart and even one step further, by helping their students grow as people too.”

 Finnies Accountants also supported the College nomination, providing a statement which praised AAT coordinator Karen Dixon and her team, “We have been working with East Riding College for a number of years as our trainees have been studying for their AAT qualifications, usually evening classes…Karen and her team have been very helpful, and we are pleased to be working with her.”

 AAT courses run at the College’s Bridlington, Beverley and Hull campuses, with a range of daytime and evening options, depending on the course.  The next start dates will be in September, and you can register your interest on the College website or contact Karen Dixon, AAT coordinator direct by emailing Karen.dixon@eastridingcollege.ac.uk
