Course description

AAT Accounting Level 2 Foundation Certificate

Depending on the level you study you will be learning in a classroom environment over one or two evenings a week. You are also expected to practice your learned skills at home or in your place of work.

You should spend three hours a week studying outside of class, for each learning and assessment area. Your study time will need to increase before assessments when you’re revising.

Don’t forget to use all the study and membership support that is also offered by AAT as well as from the course tutors.

Whole class and groupwork activities will take place but the majority of your learning will be ‘standalone’.

The course fee includes tuition and exam fees but you will have to purchase books from Kaplan which cost £113. You will also need to pay membership fees to the AAT.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This is an exam based course and you need to have achieved four GCSEs grade C (4) standard or equivalent, including English and maths, or Level 1 AAT qualification. Relevant experience will be taken into account when considering qualifications.

You will need:

  • an aspiration to achieve
  • confidence with numbers
  • the ability to complete assessments and written projects in English

Applicants will be invited to attend an interview before being accepted onto the course.

Course delivery details

You will learn about the principles of bookkeeping, costing methods, communications and computerised accounting using Sage software.

You will gain your first professional AAT qualification.

On successful completion, you can then progress on to the AAT Accounting Level 3 Advanced Diploma. There are three levels to the AAT Accounting Qualification. You will spend about a year on each level, so if you start at Level 2, it will take you three years to become fully qualified. If you have previous experience, you could have certain exemptions, and qualify in two years or less.
