Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT)

The AAT accounting qualification is universally respected and internationally recognised. Organisations such as Sainsbury’s, P&G, Morgan Stanley, the Ministry of Defence and many more continue to hire AAT qualified members for their knowledge, skills, diligence and enthusiasm, because AAT represents the highest standards of professionalism. This qualification is ideal for anyone wanting to work as an accounting technician. It gives you the relevant and practical skills to do a wide range of accounting and finance jobs.


This course provides the knowledge and skills to perform the tasks demanded by this role; it offers you the chance to gain a useful and practical qualification, while learning at your own pace. The course is based on two principles:

  • Doing the actual work, not just learning theory
  • Achieving competence to nationally agreed standards so that you and your employer have full confidence in the qualification.

The scheme has three stages:

  •  Accounting level 2
  •  Accounting level 3
  •  Accounting level 4

Each level of the scheme represents a qualification in its own right, and you will be given a certificate for each level completed.


This qualification offers flexibility and can be tailored to suit your individual needs, allowing you to choose whether to do individual or groups of units from the scheme. And it is not compulsory to complete an entire level either; you will gain recognition for each unit achieved.
