If you are planning to be an accountant or want to develop the bookkeeping skills for your business, need a professional qualification or looking to set up your own bookkeeping practice, AAT bookkeeping training courses cover everything you need to know.

The AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) is the UK's leading professional body for entry-level accountants. If you seek to develop real-life skills that will help you build a career in accounting or finance, studying for your AAT qualification with KBM Training & Recruitment will help you reach your future goals. 

AAT is the world's leading professional body for accounting technicians. In fact, the AAT accounts for around 80% of all vocational accountancy qualifications, with organisations like Morgan Stanley, Sainsbury's, P&G, the Ministry of Defence and many more continue to hire AAT qualified members. With international recognition, and recognition from sponsoring bodies such as CIPFA, ICAEW and ICAS, it is widely acknowledged as the established industry standard for technical accounting ability. 

The AAT qualification provides you with the complete skills and essential knowledge on how to effectively manage business books, including manual double-entry bookkeeping, associated documents, and process. This qualification develops the skills required to enable you to process bookkeeping transactions and prepare accounts for partnership and sole traders. Providing a solid foundation for all students for any junior accounting roles, these courses will help you enter the workforce in a financial accounting department or as a self-employed bookkeeper.

Why practical skills are important?

Though having theoretical knowledge of any course you study is important, practical training in financial processes provides a greater understanding and actual experience in accounting tasks. Incorporating accounting principles with practical skills into your studies is proven to help you better retain knowledge and get a better feel of the work you do when you get employed. Employers are reluctant to employ an inexperienced fresh graduate even with an impressive academic record. They prefer somebody with experience, who are ready to work from day one, without the need to be trained.

All our training are delivered on a one-to-one basis and are hands-on. You will work on real documents using accounting software used by the majority of organisations in the UK under the supervision of Certified Chartered Accountants.

You will be given a guaranteed opportunity at the end of your training to work in one of our partner companies as a Work Placement trainee.

Training will be provided on software like Sage 50 Aaccounts, Sage 50 Payroll, QuickBooks, VT, IRIS, Excel and many more. We will also install the Sage 50 Accounts software on your laptops for Free.
