Is this course for you?
The AAT Award in Bookkeeping offers students at Level 1 the opportunity to develop basic practical bookkeeping skills and covers the buying and selling process and the common documents used. This qualification may help students to have the confidence to move on to further study in either accountancy or bookkeeping with AAT, offer a route into employment or an apprenticeship, or be of interest to those already in employment.
This qualification will particularly suit those students who have had minimal work experience or those who need some additional support in order to progress. This may include younger learners seeking tangible and finance specific skills, adults seeking to validate their existing skills to enter into or progress in their career, or students who would like to test their abilities before progressing further with AAT. This qualification may interest those who are self-employed or working in small businesses who wish to do their own bookkeeping.
This qualification complements the other AAT Level 1 qualification I.e. the AAT Level 1 Award in Business Skills to lay a strong foundation for further study with AAT in either accountancy or bookkeeping.
AAT qualifications are valued by employers as vocational and technical qualifications that effectively prepare students for the world of work and for working specifically in accountancy and finance roles.
