AAT Bookkeeping FAQs

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) is the UK’s leading professional body offering skills-based accountancy and finance qualifications. It has more than 124,000 members worldwide.

AAT’s prestigious qualifications are internationally recognised and respected by employers, making them a perfect choice for anyone who wants to enhance their CV, impress employers, and gain the hands-on finance skills needed to excel in a huge number of accounting and bookkeeping roles.

AAT bookkeeping graduates are in high demand by employers for their highly practical, real-world-focused finance skills.

Once you've completed the AAT Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping, you'll be able to take on entry-level roles such as:

  • Clerical Assistant
  • Trainee Bookkeeper
  • Accounts Clerk
  • Finance Assistant
  • Accounts Administrator

Once you've completed the most advanced AAT bookkeeping training, the AAT Level 3 Certificate in Bookkeeping, you'll be ready to excel in more senior roles such as:

  • Professional Bookkeeper
  • Senior Bookkeeper
  • Accounts Manager
  • Ledger Manager

If you'd like to open doors to more varied accounting roles, you could also consider studying AAT Accounting training.

There are two AAT Bookkeeping qualifications available.

The AAT Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping is perfect if you have no or minimal bookkeeping experience, or if you haven't yet mastered essential skills like double-entry bookkeeping.

The AAT Level 3 Certificate in Bookkeeping is your next step once you have a firm grasp of all the topics covered on the Level 3 Certificate, including double-entry bookkeeping. Our AAT course guides include a detailed breakdown of the topics covered in each course.

If you plan on completing both qualifications as most students do, you can save money and transition smoothly by studying our Level 2 & 3 Combined Bookkeeping course.

If you’re not sure which level to choose, we recommend the AAT Skillcheck. It’s a 30-minute multiple-choice test that will suggest the right level for you based on your accounting knowledge.

Bookkeeping covers only one small area of accounting. If you’d like a broader financial skillset and more varied job opportunities, our AAT Accounting courses could be for you.

Plus, before you enrol with us, our expert AAT advisors will talk through your experience, education, and ambitions to ensure you’re choosing the right course for you.

We’re the most recommended AAT centre, with a Trustpilot rating of Excellent from more than 10,000 independent student reviews. We’re trusted by thousands of students each year across 100+ countries.

We’re also the world’s most experienced online learning provider, having been pioneers in flexible distance learning for 130 years.

Our flexible self-paced course structure, unlimited tutor support, and interest-free* monthly payment plans make it easy to shape learning around your life.

That’s why every year, we help thousands of students like you get qualifications they need to succeed.
