Roadmap for becoming an accounting?

My plan is to leave the Royal Air Force in around 5 year and in that time comple qualifications that will help me become an accountant once I leave.

My current plan is to complete a couple of A-levels (either Maths, Economics, Accounting or Business Studies) as even though I already have A-levels they are not related to accounting really.

After this I’m planning on completing AAT qualifications that will enable me to hopefully find a job in the accounting industry. From then on the goal will be to become a chartered accountant. 

Does this seem like a good roadmap for achieving a job as an accountant or is there other things that I should consider? I’m currently 21 so will will be mid-to-late 20s when leaving the RAF.
