With its exceptional reputation and industry recognition, studying an AAT apprenticeship qualification can pave the way for a successful and fulfilling career in finance and accounting.

The AAT apprenticeship programme structure

The AAT accounting apprenticeship qualification involves a comprehensive and structured programme provides you with the necessary skills and knowledge that can be applied on a daily basis. AAT apprenticeship qualifications consist of three levels:

• the Certificate in Accounting;
• Diploma in Accounting;
• the Diploma in Professional Accounting.

The AAT apprenticeship is a great stepping stone to beginning your career in accountancy and puts you on a firm path to become a Chartered Accountant. If you decide to start with an AAT apprenticeship before completing ACCA level, it means that you’ll receive exemptions and valuable work experience before completing a globally recognised qualification.

"I chose Moore because the provided me with so many opportunities. When I left school, I didn’t really know what career I wanted so I started a Business Administration apprentice at Moore. Within my first 12 months, Moore gave me the opportunity to assist in various departments alongside my secretarial role. After a couple of months, I knew my career was in the management accounts department."
