The agreement will see PSI using its cloud-based test platform to deliver both computer-marked and human-marked exams through AAT’s network of training providers and assessment venues. The platform will provide support for the entire test life-cycle, from content authoring and test development to delivery, marking and reporting for AAT assessments. These assessments provide the route to some of the most in-demand skills in the world and represent around 80% of all technical qualifications in accounting awarded in the UK.
AAT works across the globe with around 130,000 members in more than 100 countries. Its members are represented at every level of the finance and accounting world, including students, people already working in accountancy and self-employed business owners. AAT members are ambitious, focused accounting professionals, many occupying senior, well rewarded positions with thousands of employers – from blue-chip corporate giants to public sector institutions.
Speaking about the agreement, Suzie Webb, Director of Education and Development, AAT said
“We are excited that AAT and PSI will be working in partnership to take forward AAT’s assessment strategy, and to deliver an excellent user experience for all our stakeholders.
AAT will be working closely with PSI over the next two years in order to develop a comprehensive suite of functionally rich assessments and to ensure a smooth transition to the new platform.”
Janet Garcia, Executive Vice President of PSI’s Global Credentialing Division commented
“We are delighted to be partnering with AAT, particularly given the respect that the organisation commands in the global marketplace. We are also keenly aware of AAT’s wish to enter into a long-term relationship with a test provider that will offer the scalability needed to support future domestic and international growth.”
