Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Full-time applications for September 2023 are now open. Take your next step

Summary

This Level 2 Qualification equips you with new skills and essential knowledge to manage books effectively. It includes manual double entry bookkeeping, and associated documents and processes, up to trial balance standard. It is a practical course teaching you the bookkeeping for sales, purchases, payments, and receipts, contextualised in a work situation. This will prepare you for producing the accounts for both sole traders and partnerships at the next level. It is ideal if you have little or no accounting experience or qualifications, and are looking to gain a fundamental understanding of bookkeeping. This programme allows you to complete the Level 2 more quickly than the full Level 2 Accounting, for those who want to progress more quickly to Level 3.

AAT is the UK’s leading qualification and membership body for accounting and finance staff; it has over 130,000 members in more than 100 countries worldwide. AAT qualifications provide Accounting Technician status. Accounting Technicians work at all levels of finance, from accounts clerks to finance directors, playing an integral role in almost every business sector.

How will I learn?

The course is class based for 3 hours per week, plus around 2 hours self-study, for 17 weeks. There will be a mixture of teacher demonstration, group work and plenty of practical exercises, supported by your tutor. There is no coursework - instead you will have 2 online exams of 90 minutes each. These are a mix of multiple-choice and calculation questions.

The syllabus consists of the following units:

  • Introduction to Bookkeeping Candidates are taught a new and crucial understanding of the double-entry bookkeeping system and the associated documents and processes. You will be equipped with the skills necessary to operate a manual double-entry bookkeeping system, providing a solid foundation for progression to more advanced manual and computerised activities.
  • Principles of Bookkeeping Controls This unit covers control accounts, journals, and methods of payment. You will learn the reconciliation processes and the use of the journal to the stage of redrafting the trial balance, following initial adjustments. You will be able to develop your understanding of the relationship between the various accounting records and consolidate your knowledge of double-entry bookkeeping. You will be equipped with the confidence you need to perform well in the workplace as this unit prepares candidates for greater responsibility.
