WHAT DOES THE AAT TRAINING INVOLVE?
An AAT role offers you the chance to earn, learn and study for a professional qualification without incurring any student debt. In addition to earning a highly competitive annual salary, you will learn the practical aspects of accountancy whilst studying towards the AAT qualification. You will receive excellent training, combining support with your exams, practical training courses and regular reviews of your work experience. You will have the benefits of working for a small organisation, which values you as an individual, but with all the benefits of training with a large organisation.
Many AAT students progress on to the ACA qualification, so qualifying earlier than their peers who choose to go to university first. You will receive support every step of the way, from exam tutors, colleagues, your training partner and from the HAT team. All our students train with a leading firm of national tutors. For full details about the AAT exams please visit www.aat.org.uk.
As well as passing the exams, to ensure you are a competent accountant at the end of your training period, you will also attend high quality practical courses, which are written and run by HAT (these are not normally available if you chose to train with a small firm). These courses are summarised in our Training section.
MINIMUM ACADEMIC CRITERIA
You will need at least 5 GCSEs (grade A-C) including a B grade in Mathematics and a C in English and at least 112 UCAS Tariff points (or B,B,C using the old tariff). (The UCAS Tariff points are achieved from your top three A-levels or equivalent, excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking, completed in the same academic year.)
