AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping

AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping

The AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping offers students at Level 1 the opportunity to develop practical bookkeeping skills. This qualification may help students to move on to further study in either accountancy or bookkeeping with AAT, offer a route into employment or be of interest to those already in employment.

AAT Access Award in Business Skills

This qualification will particularly suit those students who have had minimal work experience or those who need some additional support in order to progress. This may include younger learners seeking tangible and finance-specific skills, adults seeking to validate their existing skills to enter into or progress in their career, or students who would like to test their abilities before progressing further with AAT.

This qualification may interest those who are self-employed or working in small businesses who wish to do their own bookkeeping. It may also be of value for those students who are studying the AAT Access Award in Accounting Software in order to develop a deeper understanding of the theory behind the practical skills they are gaining.

Who Should Attend

Students should choose to study the AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping if they wish to develop an understanding of the basics of manual bookkeeping. Students completing this qualification may wish to pursue careers in finance or business in either the private or public sectors. This qualification complements the other qualifications in the suite of AAT Access qualifications and may be combined with the AAT Access Award in Accounting Software to lay a strong foundation for further study with AAT in either accountancy or bookkeeping.
