What is AAT?

AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) is a professional body that specialises in bookkeeping and accountancy qualifications.

Wide choice of careers

AAT gives you a wide choice of careers in a range of companies, from small local businesses to large multinationals. You can work in any industry you choose, from health and beauty, technology and IT, and more. Alternatively, many people set up their own business, providing bookkeeping and accountancy services.

Gain a variety of skills to attract employers

AAT gives a wide range of transferable knowledge and skills, including technical and interpersonal competence.


Who Can Study AAT?

AAT is open to anyone, from school leavers to graduates, career changers to working mums. You don’t need any experience or formal qualifications to start the beginning courses, not even GCSEs.

AAT is a excellent alternative to university. If you’re on maternity leave or have been made redundant, re-training with an AAT course is a great asset to your employability and career prospects.
