IDEAL Schools' Foundations In Accountancy (FIA) suite of awards is the ideal way to obtain a qualification in its own right and/or act as a stepping stone to full ACCA membership. 


Foundations in Accountancy is a group of awards including:

• Certificates

• CAT Qualification – the Revised Certified Accounting Technician

These awards are flexible to suit you and focus on the core skills you will need in financial, management accounting and the wider role of the accountant in business.

This range means employers can pick the qualification which meets their business needs and provides all our students with entry flexibility and a growing portfolio of qualification and achievements.  Both Employers and Students can therefore tailor the awards making them the most flexible and attractive proposition for all.
