AAT Access Award in Business Skills

Students should choose to study the AAT Access Award in Business Skills to help them develop their employability skills and prepare for the workplace.

This qualification would be appropriate for students who wish to pursue a range of careers in either the private or public sectors. Those students who wish to focus on finance roles will only benefit from studying this qualification alongside the more technically focused but complementary qualifications in the suite of AAT Access qualifications.
