AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle PLUS Sage

You have until the end of September 2023 to complete your AQ2016 course, so before you enrol, please make sure that you will be able to complete these courses in time. If you are thinking of getting started on either the AAT Advanced or Professional courses, due to the course length, we would urge you to consider our TransitionAL (AQ16+Q22) or enrolling on the new syllabus, Q2022. If you are unsure, we would highly recommend contacting us today on 01392 435349 or email [email protected]

Take your career to the next level by training to become an AAT Licensed Bookkeeper. Study our AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle or the AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle PLUS Sage

Here at Accountancy Learning, we specialise in distance learning delivery, so you can study the AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle course from your own home at flexible times that suit you, your family, and any other commitments such as a full-time job.

The AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle PLUS Sage course can be undertaken by those with no prior experience. It can also be undertaken by those with experience who wish to have their skills recognised.

Our AATQB Bundle PLUS Sage consists of:

  • AAT Foundation (Level 2) Certificate in Bookkeeping
  • AAT Advanced (Level 3) Certificate in Bookkeeping
  • Both qualifications as shown above, AND
  • AAT Foundation (Level 2) Award in Accounting Software

The Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping introduces you to manual double entry bookkeeping up to Trial Balance stage.

The AAT Foundation Award in Accounting Software (using Sage) will give you the practical skills needed in the industry. The foundation award includes entering accounting transactions and producing reports within a computerised accounting software package.

The Advanced Certificate teaches you how to prepare manual final accounts for sole traders and partnerships and complete VAT returns.

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 and Advanced Certificates in Bookkeeping, you can apply to become an AAT Associate Bookkeeper. You will then gain the designatory letters AATQB after your name. You can also apply to become a Licensed Bookkeeper, allowing you to become a self-employed Bookkeeper.

Up until 2016, to be able to ‘practice’, you had to complete the full AAT qualification up to Level 4, and apply to be a Member in Practice (MIP).

NOW, you can achieve an AAT Level 3 (Advanced) qualification which will allow you to practice as an AAT Qualified Bookkeeper. You can then put AATQB after your name!

The AATQB Bookkeeping Bundle PLUS Sage Overview

The AATQB PLUS Sage consists of six unit assessments:

  • Bookkeeping Transactions (BTRN)
  • Bookkeeping Controls (BKCL)
  • Using Accounting Software (UACS)
  • Advanced Bookkeeping (AVBK)
  • Final Accounts Preparation (FAPR)
  • Indirect Tax (IDRX)

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.

  • Self-Study EXTRA package – Studying via our Self-Study EXTRA package, 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.
  • Tutor supported package – Students enrolled on our Tutor Supported package are assigned 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.
  • Tutor supported PLUS – Our Tutor Supported PLUS is an ‘all inclusive’ package. So, in addition to the course materials and unlimited tutor support, this package includes all the extra costs, such as AAT admission fees, exam fees, and exam invigilation (administration) fees. On top of that, we have a PASS PLUS GUARANTEE for all our StandardPLUS students – with our exceptionally high pass rates, it is highly unlikely that you would need to re-sit an exam, but just in case you don’t pass the first time, we’ll cover all the costs for you! (Terms and conditions apply.)
