AAT Award in Bookkeeping Level 1

This qualification will suit those students who have had minimal work experience or adults seeking to validate their existing skills or to progress in their career.  It may interest those who are self-employed or working in small businesses who wish to do their own bookkeeping. It will also be of value to those students who are studying the AAT Access Award in Accounting Software.

What will I learn?

The AAT Award in Bookkeeping offers students at Level 1 the opportunity to develop practical bookkeeping skills.

A student completing this qualification will develop an understanding of the role of the bookkeeper, learning underpinning theory including how to identify assets, liabilities, income and expenses; how to identify profit and loss; and the differences between trading for cash and trading on credit. Students will be introduced to the dual effect of transactions, which will support progression on to studying bookkeeping at Foundation Level.

What may it lead to?

This qualification can offer a route into employment, support students in their existing work or help students to pursue further study with AAT (Award in Accounting Software and Foundation Certificate in Accounting).

How will I be assessed?

Students must pass one end-of-qualification assessment to achieve the qualification. This is an externally assessed qualification.
