The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) offers the perfect start to a successful accounting and finance career. This qualification is recognised by leading employers in the UK and around the world and remains the ideal first step whether you’re just starting out, already working in finance or thinking of changing careers. Most importantly, an AAT qualification proves to current and potential employers that you have the accountancy expertise and skills to turn theory into practice.
We offer five short Bookkeeping Qualifications, which each take just 6 to 12 weeks to complete. These qualifications provide training for a huge range of bookkeeping roles and are respected by employers worldwide. Our professional bookkeeper status is offering a new level of AAT membership – AAT Bookkeeper. An AAT Bookkeeper holds an associate bookkeeping membership and can use the designatory letters AATQB after their name.
