The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) is a professional membership body for accounting personnel who award skills-based accountancy qualifications. It is sponsored by the five major professional accountancy bodies in the UK.
Benefits of gaining AAT qualifications
This popular membership body awards nationally recognised qualifications by employers as tangible evidence of an employee’s competence on work related tasks. By achieving an AAT qualification, you will demonstrate:
- Tangible evidence of your accounting and finance skills
- Your understanding of the latest accounting techniques and their application to the business environment
- Your continuing professional development
The Level 3 Diploma in Accounting is a four-module programme that is expected to be completed over one year.
Modules covered are:
- Tax Processes for Business
- Management Accounting Techniques
- Business Awareness
- Preparation of Financial Statements
AAT qualifications are progressive and students are expected to commence at from Level 1/2 onwards, advancing through the levels to gain full AAT membership status. Students wishing to enrol at a higher entry level are subject to interview and diagnostic assessment.
Students must register directly with AAT in order to become an AAT student member. Under the new 2022 AAT Qualification, students will pay a one-off enrolment cost for the qualification they have subscribed to. This will then allow access to this qualification until standards are revised (which is typically every 4-5 years). Level 3 Diploma in Accounting registration cost is currently £225.
Course fees include tuition fee, textbooks and one assessment of each module. Students who re-take a module will have to pay this as an additional cost.
