If you’re good with numbers, and fancy a career that’s all about money, an apprenticeship in accounting could be for you!

By combining the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) pathway with Babington’s Apprenticeship programme, you can become qualified for a career in accounting without the need for a degree.

AAT is an internationally recognised qualification that provides the essential foundation and development of skills.

The course of the qualifications enables individuals to advance from the very basics of accounting principles to the more complex tasks at Accounting Technician Level and provides a platform for continued progression through to Chartered status.

Accounting Apprenticeships with Babington Business College

Apprentices learn on the job, building up knowledge and skills, gaining qualifications and earning money all at the same time. You will work towards the nationally recognised AAT qualification. Employers all over the country recognise and value Apprenticeships as they show that you’ve been trained in the skills they need.


The Accounting Apprenticeship Level 2 framework consists of:

  • (AAT) Certificate in Accounting Level 2

  • Functional skills in English
  • Employee Rights and Responsibilities Workbook

The AAT Certificate in Accounting Level 2 allows an individual to learn and gain a globally recognised qualification designed to meet the standards set by industry in occupational areas. It is designed to cover various aspects of a job or area of work, assessing skills actually used in the accounting world. Personal Learning & Thinking Skills are embedded through the programme.

This will be delivered on a day release basis in your nearest Babington training centre over a minimum 12 month period.

How will it be delivered?


These are computer based examinations set and marked by AAT. Four of the units will be assessed this way, typically as soon as the unit has been completed. There will be opportunity to practice the exams before sitting the ‘real’ ones. Results of the computer based assessments are available immediately after the exam. If you do not achieve competence at the first attempt, the unit exam can be retaken.

AAT LearnPlus Online Assessments

One of the units is assessed by Skills-based Assessment. You will set up an e-portfolio on AAT’s LearnPlus site and an e-assessment will be set up for them. On completion of the e-assessment, it will be assessed by the tutor/assessor and verified internally. If you do not achieve competence at the first attempt, the unit exam can be retaken.

Alternatively, this unit can be assessed via work-based evidence if you are able to cover all of the criteria in this way.
