Take your career to the next level by training to become an AAT Licensed Bookkeeper with our AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle or the AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle PLUS Sage

This course can be undertaken by those with no prior experience, or those with experience who wish to have their skills recognised.

Our AATQB Bundle consists of:

  • AAT Foundation (Level 2) Certificate in Bookkeeping
  • AAT Advanced (Level 3) Certificate in Bookkeeping

And the AATQB Bundle PLUS Sage consists of:

  • Both qualifications as shown above, AND
  • AAT Foundation (Level 2) Award in Accounting Software

The Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping introduces you to manual double entry bookkeeping up to Trial Balance stage.

The AAT Foundation Award in Accounting Software (using Sage) will give you the practical skills on entering accounting transactions and producing reports within a computerised accounting software package.

The Advanced Certificate then teaches you how to prepare manual final accounts for sole traders and partnerships and complete VAT returns.

Upon completion of the AAT Foundation and Advanced Certificates in Bookkeeping, you can apply to become an AAT Associate Bookkeeper and gain the designatory letters AATQB after your name. You can also apply to become a Licensed Bookkeeper, allowing you to become a self-employed Bookkeeper.

Up until 2016, to be able to ‘practice’, you had to complete the full AAT qualification up to Level 4, and apply to be a Member in Practice (MIP).

NOW, you can achieve an AAT Level 3 (Advanced) qualification which will allow you to practice as an AAT Qualified Bookkeeper – (and put AATQB after your name)!
