What we do

As the UK’s leading qualification and membership body for vocational accountants, we pride ourselves on providing qualifications which meet the needs of both employers and employees.

Qualifications designed with employers and trusted by employers

All our qualifications are developed with employers, so they offer the practical, real-world skills that people actually need in the workplace.

A number of household names rely on us to help equip their staff with the skills and knowledge they need, including Bupa, Co-operative Bank, Greater Manchester Police and TUI Travel.

All AAT qualifications are part of the Qualification Credit Framework (QCF), so you can be assured they are based on the most up-to-date standards and are well respected within the industry.
