This qualification delivers the skills and essential knowledge to manage books effectively. It includes manual double entry bookkeeping, and associated documents and processes, up to Trial Balance standard.
There are no formal entry requirements, though a Level 1 qualification or equivalent in maths would be an advantage.
The qualification is composed of two mandatory units, assessed in two end-of-unit assessments:
A student completing this qualification will develop practical accountancy skills in the double-entry bookkeeping system and in using associated documents and processes.
Students will be able to check transactions for accuracy, make entries in appropriate books and ledgers, and calculate sales invoices and credit notes. They will also cover more complex foundation level bookkeeping procedures, including dealing with VAT, reconciliation and trial balances, and will develop their understanding of the relationship between the various accounting records.
There are end-of-unit computer-based assessments.
As part of your AAT course, you will need to purchase resource/text books to aid your revision. There may also be the additional cost of registration/subscription fees and exams (which can be discussed at interview).
AAT Fees = £48
Books = £20 per book
Assessments = £70 per assessment
AAT fee and cost for first exams is included.
Succesful completion could lead to progression to one of our other AAT courses.
