Who should choose to study this AAT Level 1 qualification?
The Level 1 Introduction to Accounting offers students the opportunity to develop practical skills in bookkeeping and business. This qualification may help students to move on to further study in either accountancy or bookkeeping with AAT, offer a route into employment or be of interest to those already in employment. This qualification will particularly suit those students with minimal work experience or those who require additional support to progress. This may include younger students, those on traineeships seeking basic employability skills, adults seeking to validate their existing skills to enter into the workplace, or those who want to study higher level AAT qualifications but would like to test their abilities before progressing further with AAT. On completion of this qualification, students will also be equipped with a strong foundation from which to progress to further study with AAT in either accountancy or bookkeeping if they would like to do so.
What does the qualification cover?
This qualification covers a range of skills and the relevant supporting knowledge in three mandatory units:
Award in Business Skills
Award in Bookkeeping
Students completing this qualification will develop an understanding of how different organisations operate, across both the public and private sectors as well as an understanding of the role of the bookkeeper, including the need to produce timely and accurate work and to follow ethical principles. Students will learn underpinning theory including how to identify assets, liabilities, income, expenses, capital profit or loss, and the differences between trading for cash and trading on credit. They will learn how to contribute effectively in the workplace by working with others, managing their time, behaving professionally and maintaining the security of data. Students will also gain an understanding of how businesses process sales and purchases and the documentation and procedures used to move goods and services between businesses. Studying this qualification will also equip students with the basic numerical skills needed in the workplace, and life outside work. These numerical skills range from simple calculations that are used most often in business to working with decimals, percentages and fractions, and applying proportions and ratios. Students will be introduced to the dual effect of transactions. This is a fundamental underpinning concept for double-entry bookkeeping and will support students who go on to study bookkeeping at Level 2. Students will also learn tools and techniques to enhance the presentation of numerical data.
Who should choose to study this AAT Level 2 qualification?
