AAT South Africa to launch capacity building project to tackle unemployment

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) in South Africa has announced it will offer the accounting technician qualification at five Universities of Technology in partnership with The Banking Sector Education and Training Authority (BANKSETA).

The organisations teamed up to help with the employability struggle in South Africa through effective education, training and development initiatives.

South Africa is in the midst of a huge unemployment problem with more than three million people between 15 and 24 years old out of work, and not being educated or trained for employment, AAT South Africa said in a statement.

Harriet Amoda, AAT South Africa project director said: “The BANKSETA funded universities of technology capacity building project presents AAT of South Africa with a unique opportunity to further cement its presence and partnerships with public tertiary training institutions. Public tertiary institutions offer the greatest potential for increased numbers of learners accessing quality qualifications.”
