By AAT Comment AAT news AAT launches Learning Pathways pilot scheme to supercharge your CPD 23 Feb 2021 AAT has launched an exciting new idea in professional development – CPD Learning Pathways. Designed to take the hard work out of planning CPD, CPD Learning Pathways help you acquire vital skills and understanding through a series of carefully planned and structured content. The initiative has started with a trial pathway for FMAATs in one of the most sought-after subject areas – Finance Business Partnering. AAT aims to use this trial to test and hone the CPD Learning Pathways concept before making it available to the wider membership later in the year. How Learning Pathways work Each Learning Pathway includes a syllabus of 10 related modules, which will be released over the coming months to give you paced development. Every module delivers a deeper understanding of a crucial element of the subject, and by releasing them over time, they allow you to develop your skills in a manageable, schedule-friendly way.
