2. Course description

The AAT Access Award in Accounting Software offers students at Level 1 the opportunity to develop their skills in using accounting software. This qualification can offer a route into employment, support students in their existing work, or help students to pursue further study with AAT. This qualification will particularly suit those students who have had minimal work experience or those who need some additional support in order to progress. This may include younger learners seeking tangible and finance specific skills, adults seeking to validate their existing skills in order to enter into or progress in their career, or students who would like to test their abilities before progressing further with AAT. This qualification may also interest those who are self-employed or working in small businesses with a requirement to do their own bookkeeping. Students studying manual bookkeeping qualifications (or with existing manual bookkeeping skills) may also be interested in studying this qualification to gain skills in accounting software in order to develop their career as a bookkeeper. AAT does not set any prerequisites for the study of the AAT Access Award in Accounting Software. However, the ability to communicate information clearly and appropriately to a given audience is a valuable skill in any role and in any type of business. For the best chance of success, we recommend that students begin their AAT studies with a good standard of English and maths.
