Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting

This course is part of an education and training scheme designed by the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) to develop highly skilled support staff in the fields of finance and accountancy.

The scheme has three stages:

  • L2 Certificate in Accounting (this course)
  • L3 Diploma in Accounting
  • L4 Diploma in Accounting

Entry to the scheme would normally be at this level.

We have had the same staff teaching AAT for over six years. They know the subjects, respect the students, the students respect them and keep coming back. Every year hundreds of students study AAT at Coventry College.

The course covers the following subjects:

  • Working effectively in finance
  • Elements of costing
