ACCA-X or AAT 3 and 4Watch
I'm hoping someone might be able to give me some tips and advice on the best route
I am working full-time as a Finance Manager for a small construction firm. I work fairly closely with the FD who teaches me quite a lot so that's great.
I completed my AAT level 2 a couple of years ago and am now eager to get back on the training horse and pick up where I left off so that I can eventually go on to become ACCA qualified. The obvious choice was to carry on with AAT at level 3 (which I think I would now fly through given the experience I've gained over the last couple of years) and then AAT level 4. However, having a look online at the best route to take to get to ACCA it looks as though they now do ACCA-X. I've not heard of this before so I don't know if it's a new thing or I just didn't know it existed when I started AAT level 2 a few years ago. I'm confused about which route will be the most suitable. Do I carry on with my AAT level 3 then 4 or should I forget that and start on this ACCA-X which looks like a foundation level similar to AAT but it seems like a much cheaper option. Both this and the AAT level 4 will then allow me to start studying for the ACCA I'm just not sure which route will better prepare me for that.
Does anyone have any feedback on the ACCA-X in comparison with the AAT levels 3 and 4?
Thank you so much for any help.
