AAT Access Level 1 Award in Accounting

AAT Level 1 Access

The AAT Access Level 1 Award in Accounting is a short introductory qualification designed to develop the knowledge and business skills required within the finance and accountancy profession.
It is designed for anyone who has little or no previous accounting experience; it is therefore suitable for anyone who would like to start a career in accounting but does not have the confidence to commence with the full level 2 qualification. The course covers all the basics of business communication and accountancy, including business maths and literacy – a useful springboard to progression onto the full Level 2 Certificate in Accounting.
