Level 1 AAT Access Award in Business Skills

Part Time

Course Overview

The AAT Access Award in Business Skills offers students at Level 1 the opportunity to develop key practical skills used in every business as a route into employment. On completion of this qualification, students will also be equipped with a strong foundation from which to progress to further study with AAT in either accountancy or bookkeeping if they would like to do so or to pursue an alternative route in a variety of possible jobs such as:

  • accounts administrator
  • administrative assistant
  • receptionist
  • retail assistant
  • customer service advisor 
  • despatch clerk/warehouse operative

This qualification will particularly suit those students with minimal work experience or those who require additional support to progress. This may include younger learners, those on traineeships seeking basic employability skills, adults seeking to validate their existing skills to enter into the workplace, or those who want to study higher level AAT qualifications but would like to test their abilities before progressing further with Accounting Via AAT or other routes with alternative qualifications.
