Accounting Technicians are employed in accounting and finance covering a wide range of roles in all sectors. The AAT’s international status and reputation means that the qualification is widely respected and recognised in all employment sectors worldwide.
The AAT is the main awarding body for the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) in Accounting.
You do not need to be working in an accounting environment to complete this qualification. Some people use this qualification to start a new career.
You will need to be both numerate and literate to be successful, but there are no formal entry requirements, although students need to have achieved all levels (2 - 4) if they want to obtain full AAT membership.
Unless you already have achieved an accounting qualification you will need to complete AAT Diploma/NVQ 3 intermediate.
Learners will be studying both financial and management accounting and they will also be looking at the management of accounting systems. Further study options are available, which include taxation and the management of business liquid resources.
The AAT qualification is sponsored by several accountancy professional bodies and can offer fast-track entry or exemptions into some higher qualifications. Alternatively, this qualification would enable you to work on a self-employed basis to provide accounting services or work within industry / practice.
