We're thrilled to announce that Newcastle City Learning won the AAT Champion Award last week!
In this category the judges were looking for training providers that have made an impact in supporting their community, improving social inclusion and mobility, through the delivery of AAT qualifications.
Our new AAT accountancy courses are proving incredibly popular, and our tutor Andrea Scope was on hand to pick up the trophy at the awards ceremony. Well done everyone!
If you are interested in the courses we're running in accountancy, our new brochure will be available from 3rd June with all of the details listed.

There have been changes to how education courses are funded for learners over 19 years old. Level 3 and above courses will no longer be funded by the Government (unless you are aged 19-23 years old and it is your first full Level 3 qualification) but you may qualify for an Advanced Learner Loan to cover your course fees.
If this loan is to fund an Access to HE Diploma leading to a completed degree, your Advanced Learner Loan will be written off so you don't have to pay it back.
It doesn't matter about your household income or even credit checks to qualify for a loan, and you don't have to pay anything back until you are earning over £25,725 a year.
Loans are available for people living in the UK on the first day of their course and have lived in this country, the Channel Islands of the Isle of Man for three years immediately before this.
Talk to our centre reception staff to get more details and your course offer letter which will have the information you will need to complete your loan application.
