AAT Level 2 Foundation Award in Using Accounting Software

Take your career to the next level with the AAT Foundation Award in Using Accounting Software

Here at Accountancy Learning we specialise in distance learning delivery, so you can study the AAT Foundation Award in Using Accounting Software course from your own home at flexible times that suit you, your family, and any other commitments such as a full-time job.
 
The AAT Level 2 Foundation Award in Using Accounting Software is the same unit that is included in the AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting. It is also a ‘standalone’ qualification in its own right. If completing this home study course on its own, it is for suitable for those who already have an existing knowledge of manual bookkeeping. It is also useful for those looking to enhance their current knowledge of a computerised accounting package or for those already working in finance but wanting recognition of their skills.

This course includes access to Sage Business Cloud for 90 days.

Entry Requirements: You don’t need any prior accounting qualifications, skills, knowledge, or experience to get started (although good basic numeracy and literacy skills are needed).

Upon completion of the AAT Foundation Award in Using Accounting Software, you can progress onto any of the other AAT Foundation Qualifications.

The AAT Foundation Award in Accounting Software Overview

  • Units and Exams
  • Course Support
  • Course Materials
  • Job Opportunities

The Foundation (L2) Award in Accounting Software consists of one unit assessment:

  • Using Accounting Software (UACS)

The package you choose will be determined by the level of coaching and tutor support you think you’ll need to help you successfully complete your course.

  • Basic (self-study) package – Studying via our Basic package (Self-study) means that you will have full access to all of our learning materials. Our resources include Progress Tests, Practice Assessments, and Mock Exams, which you will be expected to complete during your course. Don’t panic though, as we will provide you with all the answers so that you can mark your own work.

    If you get stuck along the way though e.g. with a topic or study task, the only thing you will not be able to do is to ask a tutor to help you with it! However, the good news is that you can upgrade to a tutor-supported package at any time, as needed.

  • Standard package (Tutor supported) – Students enrolled on our Standard package are assigned with a dedicated personal tutor. Your personal tutor is there to help, guide and coach you during your course, and… you can contact them as many times as you like. Your personal tutor will also contact you on a regular basis to help ensure you keep on track (and nag you if necessary!)

    Your personal tutor will also mark and provide feedback on all the Progress Tests and Practice Assessments you submit to them – this is a vital aspect of the course as it will help both you and us determine when you are ready to start sitting your exams.
