About the Course

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) accounting qualification is recognised by leading employers in the UK and around the world. This is an excellent qualification whether you are starting a career in finance, already working in finance or are looking to retrain in a new career.

Our 3 AAT qualifications (levels 2, 3 and 4) will teach and develop essential finance skills, from bookkeeping and preparing final accounts to complex management accounting tasks. Each level of the AAT is a standalone qualification, as well as providing a progression route to qualification as an accounting technician.

On completion of the AAT Level 4 Professional Diploma, you can progress to the Association of Certified Chartered Accountants (ACCA) as you will be exempt from ACCA’s F1 to F3 exams.

You can enrol for AAT in January or September.

Our courses are taught over 37 weeks on one day a week.

We have a dedicated team of staff who teach only accounting and are highly qualified with many years experience in a variety of fields.

You will have one-to-one interaction with your teacher and we give support and problem resolution advice on a pop-in basis. This means that we acheive pass rates considerably above the national average in every subject.
