AAT Accounting Qualifications

AAT Accounting Qualifications

We offer three accounting qualifications, which each take between 6 to 18 months to complete. These qualifications provide training for a huge range of accounting and finance roles and are respected by employers worldwide.

Foundation Certificate in Accounting

Our Foundation Certificate in Accounting introduces a range of basic accounting principles and techniques, making it suitable for people new to finance looking to develop an introductory level of knowledge and skills. This qualification covers areas such as costing, double-entry bookkeeping and using accounting software.

Advanced Diploma in Accounting

Our Advanced Diploma in Accounting covers a range of complex accounting tasks, including maintaining cost accounting records and preparation of reports and returns. Completing this qualification will enable your staff to master accounting disciplines such as financial processes, advanced bookkeeping and final accounts.


Complemented with the understanding of professionalism in the workplace and the importance of ethical practices, you’ll have a skilled member of staff ready to take their training to the next level.


On completion, they can apply for our bookkeeping membership and gain the designatory levels AATQB after their name.

Professional Diploma in Accounting

Our Professional Diploma in Accounting will enable your staff to become proficient in delivering high level accounting tasks. They’ll receive training in drafting financial statements, managing budgets and evaluating financial performance. They’ll also have the opportunity to specialise in areas from tax to auditing and credit control.


On completion, they’ll be perfectly placed to become an AAT full member and gain the designatory letters MAAT after their name and go onto chartered studies if they wish.

"AAT qualifications provide the flexibility to allow staff to study and bring their untapped talent to the surface, while keeping informed about the opportunities and roles available across the TUI group.
There’s a really big benefit for us in encouraging staff to study."
