Accounting software is now widely used in most organisations. This unit introduces students to using accounting software and the main features of accounting software. This qualification can offer a route into employment or an apprenticeship, support students in their existing work, or help students to pursue further study with AAT.
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 in order 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 also interest those who are self-employed or working in small businesses with a requirement to do their own bookkeeping.
Students who have already studied manual bookkeeping (or with existing manual bookkeeping skills) will benefit from studying this qualification to gain further skills in accounting software, in order to develop their career as a bookkeeper.
Students completing this qualification may wish to pursue careers in finance or business in either the private or public sectors. This qualification complements the other qualifications in the suite of AAT Access qualifications and may be combined with the AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping 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.
