Stopford apprentice qualifies as accountant
Stopfords Chesterfield LLP are pleased to announce Jess Godrich has now achieved her level 4 AAT Qualification.
Jess has been studying her AAT Level 4 alongside working at Stopfords since she joined in 2016. Jess started studying her AAT Level 2 at 16, straight after leaving school. It took her a year to complete both her AAT Level 2 and 3, and it took her two years to complete her AAT Level 4.
‘Seeing the result that I had passed my final exam filled me with pure relief. After having some real issues with my level 4 (for various reasons) and knowing that I only had until the end of December 2017, I was really nervous about not completing it in time or at all. So, when I saw I had done it, I was just so happy and proud of myself.
“I couldn’t wait to tell everyone who I feel helped me complete it; such as my colleagues at my current and previous workplace and my college peers. I will be Jessica Godrich MAAT, and it makes me feel really professional. I can now say I have a full accountancy qualification.
“Anyone who is thinking of becoming an accountant, I would highly recommend the apprenticeship route and studying of AAT. It gives you the knowledge you need but you also have the opportunity to “earn while you learn.”
