Course description

AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting (Apprenticeship):

This course is the first level of the full AAT qualification. It is ideal for you if you are currently working in accounting, or want to work in accountancy or finance.

You will study: Bookkeeping Transactions (Preparing and recording financial documentation through to trial balance); Bookkeeping Controls (Use of control accounts and reconciliations to detect errors and the correction of these errors using journals); Using Accounting Software (Processing accounting data using Sage 50 and generation of reports); Elements of Costing (cost recording and analysis, inventory management and valuation) and Working effectively in finance (covering communication skills, understanding of role and function, managing self and team working, ethics and corporate social responsibility).

Lessons will involve workshops, lectures, group work, directed study, computer packages, tutorials and individual work. Each unit is assessed by a computer based exam set and marked by the AAT.
