This Apprenticeship trains you to work in an accounts department, helping a business or organisation manage their money properly.
Every business involves financial activities, therefore Accounting Apprenticeships could involve working in a variety of organisations and job roles vary. The variety of roles makes this an attractive profession to enter.
The aim of this level of the AAT Apprenticeship is to introduce apprentices to basic accounting and finance skills. You’ll develop your skills in finance administration: double-entry bookkeeping, basic costing principles and purchase, sales, and general ledgers.
It will provide the grounding for the higher levels of the AAT Apprenticeship and support you with your first steps in your finance career. You could train in roles like:
- accounts assistant
- accounts clerk
- credit control clerk
- finance assistant
- purchase ledger clerk
- sales ledger clerk
An accountancy apprenticeship gives you a professional qualification in accountancy while you are working and also provides recognition of the development of your communication and numeracy skills. These skills will help you to improve your career prospects and your salary.
There are no specific entry conditions for this Apprenticeship framework; however, many employers require good (A*-C) GCSE passes in English and Maths. Functional Skills can be competed alongside taught lessons if GCSE English and Maths are grade D or below.
Students can progress on to the Advanced Apprenticeship in Accounting.
