AAT LEVEL 2 FOUNDATION CERTIFICATE IN BOOKKEEPING
The AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping is a short qualification that will give you a thorough foundation in bookkeeping, as well as other basic accounting practices. You will learn double-entry bookkeeping which is the foundation of all accountancy and bookkeeping qualifications. The foundation-level bookkeeping certificate consists of two units. These include Bookkeeping Transactions and Bookkeeping Controls. The Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping can be a fast-track route to Level 3. Once you have passed these two assessments you can continue to complete the full Foundation Certificate in Accounting (level 2), Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping (level 3) or the full Advanced Diploma in Accounting (level 3).
AAT LEVEL 3 ADVANCED CERTIFICATE IN BOOKKEEPING
This bookkeeping certification provides students with all the necessary skills to either work as a bookkeeper or progress to a higher level of accountancy. This qualification will therefore ensure that you understand advanced bookkeeping principles and concepts. These include preparation of financial statements for sole traders and partnerships, as well as issues around indirect tax (VAT in the UK) in business. The Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping consists of 3 units from the Advanced Diploma in Accounting. These are assessed in three end-of-unit assessments (Advanced Bookkeeping, Final Accounts Preparation, and Indirect Tax). As a result of passing the Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping, you will be able to go on to study the full Advanced Diploma in Accounting.
When you become qualified with the Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping, you can apply to become an AAT Bookkeeper. This will consequently allow you to gain professional recognition with the letters AATQB after your name.
You can even open your own bookkeeping practice and work for yourself. You may be interested in reading our blog on AAT Bookkeeping membership.
