This Level 2 AAT qualification is the first step of our professional accounting programme.
The course covers a range of basic accounting practices and techniques, from costing and double-entry bookkeeping to computerised accounting.
As a professional body, membership of AAT is required from the start of the course (during the first week your tutors will guide you through this process); this opens up opportunities to attend local branch activities and events.
Please note: This course is now at maximum capacity so we are currently unable to enrol new students. To be added to the waiting list please submit an online application via this page, upon receipt of which our Learner Recruitment team will advise you on your next steps. If there is sufficient demand on the waiting list, a second course may be run.
AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualifications open up huge opportunities nationally and internationally. The qualifications are recognised throughout the world; from small local enterprises to the biggest multinationals, there is a demand for qualified accounting staff.
