I studied AAT before going on to become a chartered accountant. I have 10 years’ experience of working in accounts in the industry, firstly working for a building company where I covered all aspects of accountancy including the sales and purchase ledgers and credit control. I also dealt with the VAT returns, stage payments and CIS deductions. I then worked for seven years as a Management Accountant for a privately owned Motorway Service Company where I prepared weekly, monthly and ad hoc management accounts, completed the VAT returns and collated the grants for a visitor centre. I also reconciled the control accounts and carried out internal audits throughout the company.
In education, I have 12 years’ experience of teaching AAT Professional accounting courses at Levels 1 to 4. I have also taught Business at BTEC and Foundation Degree (UCLan) levels.
