Course Overview

At the end of the year a further synoptic exam will be taken and this will cover the first three subjects above and Working Effectively in Finance.  The results of all exams will not be known straight away and learners will have to wait between 6 and 10 weeks for their results.  On successful completion of this course you would be able to apply for the AAT Advanced Accounting in September 2018.

On completion of the course you should be able to get a job as a Purchase or Sales ledger clerk, or a junior bookkeeper.

The course is taught at The Hub on Mondays all day (0915 – 1630hrs) or on Monday and Wednesday evenings (1800 – 2100hrs).

The costs for the course will depend on your age, what previous qualifications that you have already achieved at, whether you are on benefits or in full time employment.  For full details of the costs please ring Linda Scott on 01302 553553 in the Learner Services Department at the Hub.

If you have to pay the full costs for the course it is £800

The course fees will include your membership to AAT, all materials for the course and all exam fees for 1 sitting only, (should you not pass any of the exams then the resit costs would have to be paid for by yourself).

There are many ways to pay for the course and this could be done as follows:

  • You could get your employer to pay for the course, the college would require a letter from them on company letter headed paper. Just present this to Learner Services when you enrol.
  • You could do an apprenticeship. You have to be working for 35 hours a week in an accounting role, petty cash, purchase/sales ledger etc. For more details contact workforce development 01302 553553.
  • You could pay by Standing Order. The college would require a deposit of £130 and then 7 monthly instalments of £100.
