Durham Student Named International AAT Student Of The Year

Local student Devonne Burn has been named Student of the Year at the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) awards.

Miss Burn is currently studying the AAT professional diploma in accounting at New College Durham and is awaiting her final exam results. She was shortlisted for the award following her achievement of a distinction on both the foundation certificate in accounting and the advanced diploma in accounting. Devonne scored exceptionally high marks in all units, whilst working full time as an Accounts Manager at CCL Office Ltd.

Devonne commented: “I’m delighted to have won the AAT Student of the Year Award. I was so pleased to be nominated, but didn’t expect that I would go on to win considering AAT currently have 70,000 students! I really enjoyed my time studying at New College Durham and I felt extremely well supported by the teaching staff at the college. Despite being in full-time work I was able to balance up my studies with my job.”

Devonne’s tutor, Carol Smith commented: “we are delighted for Devonne. She was a real pleasure to teach and a truly dedicated student who was always polite and focussed.

“Over the last two years we have won student of the year, apprentice of the year and medium training provider of the year. This demonstrates the outstanding work of our students and the AAT team at New College Durham.”

Steve Bell, Head of School at New College Durham commented: “With so many AAT students worldwide, this is a fantastic achievement. We are delighted for Devonne and wish her every success in her future career.”
