How to study
AAT qualifications are delivered by AAT Approved training provider Sepera College around the world.
There are many different ways to study, and courses can be designed to fit around students’ work or family commitments. Whether they want to study full-time or part-time, in the classroom, online or through a combination of these, learners can choose the study style that’s right for them.
Sepera College offers 3 different learning methods which you can read below.
1. Online or distance learning
Online (or “distance learning”) is the most flexible way to study.
Studying via distance/online learning means Sepera College doesn’t need to be in your local area.
However, you may need to sit your assessments at an approved assessment venue.
2. Learn in a classroom
Classroom study is ideal for students who prefer structured learning.
Classroom study is ideal for students who prefer a shared learning experience by attending lessons in person. We also offer blended learning, combining both classroom and online study.
They’ll get plenty of support from the tutor and other students, so it’s a great option for those who haven’t studied for some time. As well as full-time courses, training providers offer part-time courses that can be studied during evenings or weekends.
3. Blended learning: in class and online
This is an increasingly popular way to study. Students get access to structured, tutor-led, face-to-face and/or virtual classroom sessions supported by a local training provider, with the flexibility to progress their studies at work or home. Choose “Classroom” on the Find a training provider service to find providers offering blended learning.
Most students need support from a tutor, and we encourage all students to register with an approved training provider Sepera College for the best chance of success.
However, if you feel you’re confident in studying without tutor support, you may wish to consider self-studying.
You’ll need to buy AAT textbooks or choose a self-study package. You’ll still need to register with AAT, which will give you access to study support on our AAT Lifelong Learning Portal and eligibility to sit assessments. You’ll also need to find an approved assessment venue to sit our assessments, depending on the qualification you study.
