AAT is the UK’s leading qualification and membership body for accounting and finance staff, with over 125,000 members in more than 90 countries worldwide. AAT qualifications provide Accounting Technician status. Accounting Technicians work at all levels of finance, from accounts clerks to finance directors.
The Level 2 Foundation Certificate is for candidates who have little or no accounting experience or qualifications and are looking to gain a thorough understanding of the fundamental elements of accounting. The Blended Learning model is designed for students who have a little more confidence, and are unable to commit to class room study but can come in once every 3 weeks for one hour to meet with a tutor, and once every 6 weeks to sit exams.
Candidates require a level 2 in Maths & English (A to C Grade GCSE or equivalent), and a good standard of general education. A successful interview and assessment will be required prior to enrolling and these can be completed at our AAT Open Evening. Level 2 applicants do not require any previous accounting experience prior to enrolling however any accounting/business experience will be beneficial.
Students are provided with a comprehensive set of on-line learning materials which they work through via an e-platform. For each module this provides tutorials, practice assessment and interactive tasks so the tutor and student can assess progress.
Once every 3 weeks students come into College for 1 hour at a time agreed with your tutor. This is an opportunity to discuss any areas where you need greater support and plan your future learning and assessment. You will need to be reasonably flexible with when you can come in to college.
All exams will be held at either the SGS Filton or Stroud Campus.
Learners can progress onto the Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting.
