The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) has appointed Mark Farrar, former head of construction training provider CITB, as chief executive.

Mr Farrar replaces Jane Paul, who retired earlier this year.

He said: “AAT is a well renowned and respected body in the education sector and I am delighted to join in such an exciting time for the organisation.”

AAT recently released research that showed apprentices delivered around £1.8bn of net economic benefits to UK organisations last year.

Businesses get an average £2,000 bottom-line boost every time they take on an apprentice, once wage and training costs have been factored in, according to its research report The Value of Apprentices.
