The course is for those who wish to build on their knowledge and skills in bookkeeping and learn about more complex accounting techniques.
This course covers a range of accounting practices and techniques, such as maintaining cost accounting records and the preparation of reports and returns.
You will cover the following six units:
All units use computer-based assessment, 4 of which are electronically marked by AAT, the remaining two are marked internally.
AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualifications can open up huge opportunities nationally and internationally. The qualifications are recognised throughout the finance world, from small local enterprises to the biggest multinationals, there is a demand for qualified accounting staff. You can climb the finance ladder by gaining further AAT qualifications at Level 4.

You will need a textbook for each unit. Your tutor will advise you of the cheapest places to buy these at the start of the course. Limited textbooks are available in the college LRC for short term loans.
