    I'm thinking of applying for a job while on my gap year in September but it's a 2 year programme to get an AAT qualification while working. I don't really need it since i'm going on to study economics after a year.

    Would i be able to just quit after a year or will i tell them that i'll continue it at uni? I don't want to include the fact that i'll only be working there for a year on my job application.

    There's a good chance that if you get the position your contract will include a clause stating you have to repay tuition and exam fees if you leave before the end of the contract period. This is typical for training contracts. Could cost you a fair bit, not really sure how much college time you'd have with the AAT.

    Questionable why you would want to apply for this if you know you only have a year? It's not exactly going to result in a glowing reference!
