I'm currently working for a motor firm as a Purchase Ledger Clerk, I've been there for about 6 months now and I am nearing my 6 month probation period - everything so far has run smoothly, I received excellent feedback for my 3 month review and the firm have repeatedly told me that they will fund any examinations I wish to do. I've currently been looking into the best paths to take and I have a few questions I'm a bit unsure about.
From what I can understand, most people start with AAT level qualification, which seems to lay the foundations towards a chartered accountancy course. I have completed my studies up to degree level, although i suffered with grades for my A Levels and Degree (to be blunt, I was in and out of hospital during this period of my life). Personally, I would like to avoid doing the AAT and move straight onto a chartered accountancy course, would my degree help to fast track me into this position?

I am also interested in listening to some opinions regarding charterered accountancy courses. I have seen that there's ACCA, CIMA and ICAEW, I'm not sure if there are more qualifications I haven't heard about but I would be interested in learning more about the pros and cons of each qualification?

Do the AAT, which will give a full foundation to accountancy and then you can be fast tracked to the ICAEW.
All the best
