Course Information

This course is designed to give students a taster of key accounting concepts and provide students with the introductory knowledge and confidence to take on higher level AAT qualifications.

Who is it for?
The AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping offers students at Level 1 the opportunity to develop practical bookkeeping skills. This qualification may help students to move on to further study in either accountancy or bookkeeping with AAT, offer a route into employment 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 financespecific 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. It may also be of value for those students who are studying the AAT Access Award in Accounting Software in order to develop a deeper understanding of the theory behind the practical skills they are gaining.
