The AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians)
The AAT have over 130,000 members in more than 90 countries. These are either studying accountancy and finance or working within the industry. Our AAT training courses and their relevant qualifications are recognised by Ofqual. Through its network of approved colleges and training providers, the AAT award more vocational qualifications in accounting than any other awarding body.
It is a legal requirement in the UK for a business to keep accurate up to date records regardless of size. Moreover, failure to do so can result in fines and even imprisonment for serious offenders. Therefore, it is vitally important for all businesses to have someone suitably knowledgeable or qualified to deal with the bookkeeping and accounting. This could be the owner of the business when it is relatively new or it might even be a fully qualified Bookkeeper or Accountant.
You don’t need a string of GCSE’s, ‘A’ Levels or college certificates to complete our courses, or indeed to be successful in accounting.
The AAT’s reputation and standing within the accounts industry means your qualifications will be instantly recognised by employers. This will in turn, depending on the level of qualification, open up employment opportunities, whether as an accounts assistant or senior accounts employee. You may have ambitions of running your own accounts business or working as a partner in an already established business. Whatever your ambition and dreams there will always be a demand for qualified people in the finance and accounts industry. As laws and legislation changes, the demand will only ever increase.
You don’t need previous qualifications or experience to study our AAT training courses.
