The award recognises South Eastern Regional College’s quality in the delivery of Accounting Technicians qualifications and, with an ATI qualification seen by many employers as essential when hiring, it’s welcome news for anyone considering studying in this area.
Ken Webb, SERC Principal and Chief Executive, said: “SERC are delighted to partner with ATI. By ensuring our programmes are professionally accredited, our qualifications have added value both to students and to employers who require students who have the technical knowledge and skills required to add value to their organisations. At SERC we are committed to producing industry-ready students and accreditation by professional bodies is an essential component in helping us achieve this.”
Gillian Doherty, Director of Education at ATI welcomed SERC as the newest ATI Approved Partner. “We are delighted to partner with SERC. We have a network of approved centres located in Northern Ireland, so we are delighted to strengthen our links with the area through this new partnership.”
