If you would like to develop a career in accountancy and want an industry recognised qualification then this is the course for you.

You already have an existing Level 2 qualification in accounting or bookkeeping or relevant work experience and want to expand your skills. If you don’t have this then our AAT Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship (Level 2 Pathway) will be the best route for you.

During this qualification, you will learn more complex finance officer processes e.g. final accounts for sole traders and partnerships. Build on existing accounting knowledge, gain more specialist skills in related areas and gain a greater understanding of the ethical issues involved with accountancy.

This course is also delivered off-site at St Mellion.
