AAT Diploma in Accounting (Blended Learning) - Level 3


We are excited to introduce our revamped AAT courses. With multiple start dates available throughout the year, our blended learning approach seamlessly integrates face-to-face interaction with online activities. This new model entails attending college for one evening every week or one full day every two weeks, accompanied by 3-6 hours of online tasks to be completed at your convenience before the subsequent classroom session.

Our accountancy courses are meticulously crafted to equip you with practical skills directly applicable to your workplace, facilitating your career advancement. This course encompasses a comprehensive array of crucial accounting tasks, such as the maintenance of cost accounting records and the preparation of reports and returns. Moreover, our curriculum highlights key themes including technology, ethics, sustainability, and communication across the suite of accounting qualifications.

An AAT qualification offers you a professional status that reflects the skills you’ve worked so hard to gain.
