Choosing your accounting apprenticeship

Learn what level would be suitable for you.

Level 2
Foundation Certificate

Level 3
Advanced Diploma

Level 4
Professional Diploma

Level 7
Professional Programme

The accounting apprenticeship will give you a day to day taste of what a career as an accountant will involve, providing you with a chance for continued progression through to chartered status.

Despite being in training, you will get involved with a range of tasks including raising purchase orders, coding, and filing invoices. The certificate in accounting is split into three levels: Foundation, Advanced, and Professional.

As you move onto the higher levels, you will take on more responsibilities such as evaluating a business’s financial performance, and providing critical information to the rest of the business.

As well as gaining an AAT qualification, you can also work towards functional skills qualifications in maths and English if needed, supplied by Babington’s expert tutors.

These qualifications usually last 12 months, however the length of time will depend on the course, the ability of the individual, and the employer’s requirements.

What is AAT?

An internationally recognised qualification, AAT is the go-to route if you want to start an accounting career. Whether you wish to start earning within a business straight away, want to continue your chartered studies, or set up your own practice, it all starts here.

The AAT qualification and accounting apprenticeship will ensure you are work-ready for an in-demand role, and employers in all industries will be on the lookout for someone like you to drive the finances of their business.
