Is this course for you?
If you are hardworking and ambitious and want to achieve an AAT level 2 and 3 Accounts qualification in one academic year rather than two, then this is the course for you.
This course is ideal for those who want a career in accountancy as professional qualifications accredited by AAT can set you on track to a range of future job opportunities, whether in bookkeeping, accountancy, auditing, tax or self-employment.
The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) is an internationally recognised qualification. Employers frequently ask for potential employees to have achieved at least one level of the AAT qualification. 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.
For the level 2 course you will sit mandatory exams in:
- Bookkeeping Transactions
- Bookkeeping Controls
- Elements of Costing
- Using Accounting Software
- Work Effectively in Finance
The accountancy and finance knowledge developed in the level 2 qualification provides the underpinning knowledge needed for the higher level accountancy and financial skills developed in the AAT Advanced Diploma – level 3.
For the level 3 course you will sit mandatory exams in:
- Accounts preparation
- Preparing final accounts for sole traders and partnerships
- Management costing
- Indirect tax
- Synoptic exam (including professional ethics and spreadsheet software)
Working in accountancy requires good communication skills, IT skills and an understanding of the business environment, all of which are covered by this qualification.
This qualification is suitable for young people who have GCSE’s, A-levels or a degree, as well as for adults returning to work after a break or for those wishing to change their career.
