I feel stuck in an unfulfilling job which I am not progressing in. Leading to unhappiness and questioning my overall state of mind. What should I do? Warning: a lot of detail inside.

I graduate with the ultimate aim of becoming a qualified accountant. Shortly after I got a job in a small charity( where I have been for the past two and a half years). This is in finance.
I slowly learned all the day to day operations. On the course of my employment I was promised high level tasks. This has been addressed in reviews on numerous occasions. The feedback gained from my line manager has been good. He has often said he would like me to progress and advance. In my review one objective set was to spend more time with me to show me higher level duties. This has never materialised, I feel my manager has deliberately not showed me these tasks due to his own insecurities and it is his manager putting pressure on him to give me more task. This is evident due to comments such as "knowledge is power" and by his attitude in general.
I really just want to progress to get on with higher level tasks to fulfil my ambition. This is escalating to make me feel unhappy and Grumpy at work.
Please could you offer any suggestions on how to fulfil my goals?
Addition info: work are also paying me to go to college at weekend to complete professional accounting exams.
