Accountancy results add up for Jessica
New Ross resident Jessica Curran has secured one of the top marks in the country in a Diploma for Accounting Technicians programme.
Accounting Technicians Ireland's (ATI) qualification is recognised as the fastest pathway to a professional accounting career.
Jessica (20), from New Ross, heard about the full-time ATI course at Colaiste Abbain in Adamstown from a friend after she finished school.
She said: 'I was thinking of college but then my friend mentioned this course and when I looked into it a little more, I thought it would be perfect for me. The lectures were diverse and the tutors were really supportive during the two-year, full-time course and I really knew at the end that I wanted to carry on with a career in Accountancy so I'm going to do a degree course now.'
Jessica advised any student who has just received their Leaving Certificate results not to just jump straight into college.
'Have a look at what's out there and consider your options with the ATI.'
