Course overview

The aim of the course is to offer you the opportunity to gain the skills demanded by employers in accounting and finance, whilst achieving an internationally recognised qualification that could ultimately lead to the full AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) Accounting Qualification and full AAT membership.

All units are mandatory and the subjects include;

- Management Accounting
- Computerised Accounting

Work Experience
You will be required to undertake a 2 week, block, work experience placement to embed your knowledge in a practical environment.

English
Alongside your course, if you have just missed out on a GCSE grade 4, you will have the opportunity to study English to improve your skills in this vital subject by attending structured weekly sessions as part of your timetable.

What else do I need to know?

You learn through experiencing a varied programme which includes activities, solving simulated problems, lectures, group work, discussions and attempting past examinations. You will also be required to study away from lectures to ensure exam success. To help you there is a course team of friendly, approachable tutors committed to your success who will encourage you to use the College's extensive resources including computer facilities, library, private study area and careers and counselling service.

What are the entry requirements?

You will need four or more high grades at GCSE including Maths at grade 5 jor above and an appropriate level of English.
