Accounts – Foundation Certificate in Accounting (Level 2) (Part Time)

Course Overview

The AAT Level 2 Certificate in Accounting is a part-time course suitable for students who are interested in accountancy, working with accounts, or becoming a chartered accountant.

AAT (The Association of Accounting Technicians) courses offered under the AAT training scheme gives students the opportunity to gain experience and to progress in their accounting careers. Courses consist of three levels. Each level represents a qualification in its own right. Students receive a certificate for each level achieved. Registration with AAT is required and the cost of this, plus some examinations, is paid directly to the professional body. The costs below don’t include exam fees payable to the College.

The level 2 qualification consists of 5 assessments.  These assessments include Bookkeeping Transactions, Bookkeeping Controls, Elements of Costing, Using Accounting Software and a Synoptic unit, which incorporates the first three assessments again plus Working Effectively in Finance.  These units provide a good breadth of understanding for the new accounting employee or those wishing to enter the accounting environment.

  • Entry Requirements
