Access (Level 1) qualifications are an entry point for students who need additional support to develop their finance or business skills. These qualifications are designed to give students the introductory knowledge and confidence to take on higher level AAT qualifications and to progress in their lives and careers.
The AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping offers students at Level 1 the opportunity to develop practical bookkeeping skills. 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. AAT does not set any prerequisites for the study of the AAT Access Award in Bookkeeping. 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, particularly in finance roles.
For the best chance of success, we recommend that students begin their AAT studies with a good standard of English and maths.
- Understand the role of the bookkeeper
- Understand financial transactions
- Process customer and supplier transactions
- Process receipts and payments
Following successful completion of this qualification, your progression will normally be to the AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting.
