What you will study

At least 20% of your working week for the duration of the apprenticeship must be spent carrying out new learning relating to the apprenticeship standards. To support you in achieving this, you will study the AAT Level 3 Accounting Diploma:

• Advanced bookkeeping

• Final accounts preparation

• Management accounting: Costing

• Indirect tax

• Ethics for Accountants and Spreadsheets for accounting (This will be assessed within the synoptic exam taken at the end of the course)

How will it be delivered?

Assessment will be continuous and take place in both the workplace and the College. There will be a combination of computer-based assessments and projects or work-based evidence.

Entry requirements

Flexible dependent on age and experience, i.e. Level 2 Apprenticeship or AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting.

Certificate evidence of English and maths at level 2 or GCSE grade A*-C (or new grade 9-4). If you do not have these, we can support the development of your English and maths skills through completion of Functional Skills in the relevant subject and one-to-one support. Most employers look for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C (or new grade 9-4). This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.
