Is this the right course for me?

If you are aged 19 or over and interested in working in accounting and finance an AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification can add up to a great career!

AAT accountancy courses will give you the practical, internationally-recognised finance and accountancy skills that employers want and can open doors for you in the industry and will give you membership to a highly respected international professional body of accountants which has over 120,000 members worldwide.

The Level 1 qualification is a four-day intense course which provides an introduction to accounting and is suitable if you have little or no experience of accounting, want to change career, are looking to return to work, or run your own business and need to understand how to keep records and prepare basic accounting information.

The course will help you develop essential business and finance skills to get you on the career ladder - such as using mathematics for accounting, creating business documents and performing essential accounting procedures – and will not only cover theory but also real life skills that will be relevant to your role within a finance team. You will also get the chance to improve your English and maths skills.

After achieving the AAT Level 1 qualification you will have the option to progress to study for the AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting.

ENROL NOW! You can enrol throughout the year for any of the AAT qualifications - all of the courses have multiple start dates during the year.
