Achieve study success while working 

Ask your boss to support you through your studies:

  • Provide time and space to study 
    Many organisations find that giving their staff paid study leave to attend classes, revise or sit assessments boosts their study success.
     
  • Work experience and mentoring 
    Shadowing colleagues, and placements or job swaps in different departments will give students the chance to master the skills they learn during AAT training. Appointing a mentor for your AAT students can also help their confidence and understanding as they train.
     
  • Attend AAT branch events and other specialist events 
    You can take part in a wide range of courses and events at our regional branches. Many of these focus on specific topics and relevant issues - such as tax changes after the Budget or new financial legislation.

 

AAT's study resources

AAT's industry-leading e-learning and study support for students will put you on the path to success. 

Students can access these resources through their MyAAT account. The resources include interactive tutorials, practice assessments, worksheets and e-seminars, to improve understanding of each learning area and to complement their studies. 

Our online resources include:

  Practice assessments   Students can familiarise themselves with content type and question structures and try example assessment questions to practise their technique.  
 

E-learning modules

  These are designed to enhance students' understanding and give them a chance to test their skills. The modules include interactive tutorials, worksheets and animations focusing on a key topic.  
 

Green Light tests

  Students can judge how well they understand their learning areas and identify where they need to put in some more work. The tests also give students an idea of whether they are ready for the assessment.  
 

Qualification specifications

  These show students what they need to know for their assessments and help them understand the skills and knowledge they'll be assessed on.  
 

Study support webinars

  Delivered in conjunction with Home Learning College, each session relates to a specific element of an AAT accounting qualification unit. Students can register to join a live webinar or watch a previously recorded session.  
  Study skills webinars   Delivered in conjunction with BPP, these webinars cover the skills required to ensure study is effective. Students can search for a study skills webinar and register to join or watch a previously recorded session.  
 

Skills checklist

 

Students can tick off the skills they have gained through each unit. They can also use the checklist to see all the new skills they'll gain when they progress to the next level.

 

AAT events and networking

We run free and paid-for events including branch networking events where students can meet other AAT students and members, as well as mastercourses covering the latest accountancy and financial topics.

Students will receive 20 magazine and AAT Weekly student e-newsletter, for expert articles, industry news and updates. 

Students can also share ideas and study tips with other AAT members on our lively AAT discussion forums, and keep up to date with the latest study and accounting news from AAT on Twitter @Youraat.
