AAT is the UK’s leading qualification and membership body for accounting and finance staff; it has 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 Bookkeeping Certificate is for candidates who have little or no accounting experience or qualifications and are looking to gain an understanding of the fundamental elements of bookkeeping, but do not wish to study the full Level 2 Certificate in Accounting. During the course, candidates will cover a number of units including bookkeeping transactions and bookkeeping controls.
What do I need to join?
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 enroling, however any accounting/business experience will be beneficial.
How will I learn?
Learning will take place in a classroom environment. Computer-based testing is used for assessment of each of the units, with mock exams taking place during classroom sessions. Final exams follow the completion of each unit at a date and time to be advised at the start of your course – but normally during standard class times.
What can I do next?
This qualification can be used as a fast track to the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting Level 3. Once a staff member has successfully completed the Level 4 AAT Diploma in Accounting they can go on to study chartered accountancy. This AAT Level 2 course is an extremely popular route to chartered studies.
