Coronavirus Update

Eastleigh College has moved to online learning, as such campuses are closed to the vast majority of learners. The College remains open (including over the Easter holiday period) for 16-18 learners of key workers, and those learners with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP). However, for both categories, learners are asked to stay at home where it is safe to do so. Consistent with public health advice, learners and staff are asked to follow public health guidance and the steps outlined via the 'read more' button.

What opportunities will this course give me?

The finance, accountancy, business and communications skills developed in the AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting can lead to employment as:
Accounts Administrator,
Accounts Assistant,
Accounts Payable Clerk,
Purchase/Sales Ledger Clerk,
Trainee Accounting Technician or
Trainee Finance Assistant.
The accountancy and finance knowledge developed in this qualification is also the underpinning knowledge needed for the higher-level accountancy and financial skills developed in the AAT Advanced and Professional Accounting Qualifications.

What will I be learning?

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Foundation Certificate in Accounting is an ideal starting point for anyone wishing to pursue a career in accountancy or finance, covering a range of foundation accounting and finance skills in five mandatory units. This unit looks at control accounts, journals and methods of payment. Students will work through reconciliation processes and the use of the journal to the stage of re-drafting the trial balance following initial adjustments.

Why is this course for me?

This course of study is delivered via distance learning. Included in the cost of the course are text and revision books, specialist online resources, one exam sitting, telephone and email support as well as limited one to one tutor support.
This module will be assessed by way of a computer based assessment taken in college.

What do I need to sign up?

New applicants (those who have not yet taken a Level 2 AAT unit at Eastleigh College) will be required to attend an interview at the college which will include a simple English and Maths assessment.

Is there anything else I need to know?
