    About this award

    The Foundation Award in Bookkeeping with AAT is a great course which will help you take the first step into the world of finance. With this training programme you will have the opportunity to gain a Pitman Training certification and a recognised industry accounting qualification. 

    It’s a strong practical training programme that will help to prove to employers that you have a head for numbers, and ensures you understand the workings and processes involved with manual bookkeeping. It is most suitable for those with no prior bookkeeping or accounting experience as you will start right at the beginning of the learning process for this skill. 

    The programme is broken down into 3 modules and is very practical in nature so you’re not just sitting and reading the theory. In each module you will work through real-life scenarios which deal with bookkeeping challenges, giving you hands-on practical experience ensuring you really are prepared for situations you may find yourself in when taking up a bookkeeper role.

    As part of your training you’ll have access to MyAAT which is an online website that all AAT students have access to. On here you’ll find articles, practice papers and other resources all designed to help you fully grasp the finance skills you’re learning.

    Once you’ve successfully completed the course and associated qualification examinations you’ll gain a Pitman Training certificate and an AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping.
