Award Winning Training Provider

AAT Level 2 - Foundation Award in Accounting Software

Make IDEAL Schools your #1 Training Partner

This module forms part of the full AAT Level 2 Accounting qualification but also offers a stand alone AAT award in Computerised Accounting. To help with completion of this course we will provide you with a fully licensed copy of Sage 50 Accounts Essentials. We select not to use 180 day training software for the following reasons:
  1. As you progress through further study you will still have access to the software for continued practice, vital in keeping your knowledge fresh for future employment.
  2. As you move through future study, and your knowledge of accounting increases, we will provide you with opportunities of further computerised training, covering more complex sets of accounts. Although not essential as part of the AAT syllabus, this will be of great benefit to your future career.
