Do you want to gain a solid understanding of accounting? Would you like to learn and develop the key skills required of accountants around the world?
This qualification will prepare you for junior and entry-level accounting roles. It will give you a solid foundation in finance administration and covers areas such as double-entry bookkeeping and basic costing principles. You will learn finance, accountancy, business, and vital communication skills.
You don’t need any previous qualifications or accountancy experience to begin studying AAT Level 2. However, you must have a good standard of English literacy and basic maths skills. We also recommend that you register with AAT within four weeks of registering with us so you can receive your AAT student number, which enables you to enter for assessments. If you have any criminal convictions you will need to discuss this with AAT before purchasing a course.
By the end of the AAT Level 2 Certificate course, you will be able to process daily business transactions in a manual and computerised bookkeeping system. You’ll also be able to control accounts, work on payroll and understand basic costing principles.
The course is assessed by a combination of unit assessments and one synoptic assessment.

To be awarded the AAT Level 2 Certificate in Accounting qualification you must achieve at least a 70% competency level in each unit assessment and in the synoptic assessment.
You can resit an assessment to improve your grade. Results from the assessment with the highest marks will be used to calculate your final grade. There are no resit restrictions or employer engagement requirements for any fee paying student on any of our AAT courses.
