AAT Level 2 Foundation Accounting

Take your career to the next level with an AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting

This Foundation Certificate in Accounting (AAT Level 2) distance learning or home study course represents the typical starting point for those who wish to work in an accounting role in practice or industry. 

It’s also an excellent qualification for those who are already working in finance but would like recognition of their skills.

The course will introduce you to manual double entry bookkeeping skills including associated documents and processes, up to Trial Balance standard. It also includes key units (modules) on Cost Accounting and Computerised Accounting. Little or no prior knowledge or experience is required, although good basic numeracy and literacy skills are needed.

Following successful completion of the AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate, you can progress onto any of the AAT Advanced qualifications.

We have three different course packages to suit all needs and budgets. You can choose from our:

  • Basic Package: £329 

    For those who don’t feel they need tutor support, this package includes all course materials (as well as answers to the practice papers) to allow self-study and marking of your own work. It does not include any AAT registration fees or exam/admin fees.

  • Standard Package: £699 

    For those who would like the re-assurance of having their own personal tutor, this package includes all course materials as well as uncapped tutor support. It does not include any AAT registration fees or exam/admin fees.

  • StandardPLUS Package: £1,504 

    For those who want to combine all the related costs into one invoice. As with the Standard package, this option includes all course materials as well as uncapped tutor support, but it does include all AAT registration fees as well as exam/admin fees.
