AAT, payroll courses, bookkeeping courses


I'm currently doing AAT level 2 Sage One through Home Learning college

From looking online I can see that there are solely bookkeeping courses, payroll courses, software courses like sage line 50 etc

I'm guessing that doing AAT level 2 - 4 gives you good knowledge covering all the topics, should I just do the AAT level 2 - 4? Or should I do AAT level 2 - 4 and do these extra courses?

After level 2 I am going to start sending my CV out to practices and applying for roles online.

    Hi SimonG,

    I'd say you're certainly on the right track by starting with AAT Level 2, this gives you a foundation in Accounting, progressing onto Level 3 which is the intermediate level, finishing with Level 4 which is the advanced level. Each level steps up the complex issues that arise within accounting and teaches you to process, handle and control the situations.

    I did the same as you, started Level 2, did a few exams and then got my CV out to various companies within the local area. I'd say use some local recruitment agencies too, showing you're a distance learner (self-studying) on your CV is quite a commitment to your chosen career and will open doors.

    Cheers :)
