Down students lead the way as accounting technicians graduate
Down students were to the fore as Accounting Technicians Ireland conferred membership to graduates in its first virtual conferring ceremony.
Zara Malcolmson, Rathfriland, was placed first in Ireland in her year two exams, whilst Josephine Gribben, Warrenpoint, placed second in her year one exams.
Janine Hillock, Dromore; Emma Hughes, Killowen and Lauren Sayers, Waringstown were among those conferred as a Member of Accounting Technicians Ireland, as well as receiving the Diploma for Accounting Technicians.
Qualifications combine professional exams and assessments with practical work experience.
ATI delivers its programmes via a network of partner colleges all over the island of Ireland, and online, and its syllabus is tailored to suit students in both jurisdictions. Students can study full-time, part-time, online and as apprentices.
Graduates were conferred across three programmes, the Accounting Technician Apprenticeship, the Higher-Level Apprenticeship and the Diploma for Accounting Technicians.
Also, 40 Fellowships were awarded to experienced Accounting Technicians Ireland members in recognition of their contribution and expertise.
