Next steps: 

The aim of this course is to provide students with the specialist knowledge and skills required for a clear progression to a choice of careers in Finance. It will also lead to further studies in bookkeeping and the full AAT Level 4 Diploma in Accounting.

Entry Requirements

The AAT does not set any prerequisites for the study of the AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping. However, for the best chance of success, we require students to begin their AAT Level 3 studies with a Level 2 bookkeeping or accounting qualification.

Learners also need to have maths and English GCSE at grade C/4 or equivalent.
