Access (Level 1) qualifications are an entry point for students who need additional support to develop their finance or business skills. These qualifications are designed to give students the introductory knowledge and confidence to take on higher level AAT qualifications and to progress in their lives and careers.
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. 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 AAT. AAT does not set any prerequisites for the study of the AAT Access Award in Business Skills. However, the ability to communicate information clearly and appropriately to a given audience is a valuable skill in any role and in any type of business. For the best chance of success, we recommend students begin their studies with basic English. Basic numeracy will be developed within this qualification so is not required before starting study.
