Stand out from the crowd
Bookkeepers are always in high demand from small businesses that don’t want to or can’t afford a full accountancy service to back-room staff in major financial corporations that need more hands-on deck. Yet with the size of the job market it can be easy to be overlooked time and time again.
Holding an AAT certificate in bookkeeping is a big plus on your CV making you stand out from the crowd. Employers know that what they’re getting is a reliable employee who understands:
- Single and double-entry bookkeeping
- Preparing and processing invoices and credit notes
- Understand the use of control books and journals
- Processing ledger transactions
- Balancing a 3-column cash book
- Using computerised spreadsheets (introduction to Excel)
In fact, for many jobs it is an absolute basic requirement that you have an AAT qualification.
Does getting qualified really matter if you can do the job? Does it matter who you choose? Can you not just learn it all from a book from the library?
The answers are YES, YES and NO.
Of course it matters. Employers are faced with stacks of applications for every post so they’re going to choose the applicants who they are confident can perform. The AAT – Association of Accounting Technicians – is the UK’s leading professional body for bookkeepers and accounting staff and boasts a six-figure worldwide membership of 120,000 and is sponsored by the major chartered accountancy bodies – CIPFA, ICAEW, CIMA and ICAS. Choosing an AAT qualification shows you’re serious about your career.
Fast Track gets you earning faster

You may only need a week to complete a Fast Track course but that’s not the end. Once you have qualified, not only can you start looking for work, you also gain the prerequisites for several other training courses including Computerized Accounting, Level 3 and 4 Bookkeeping courses, and the AAT Accounting Qualification – all of which are industry recognized and extremely employable.
A Fast Track course is a classroom based course at a London training centre. All tutors are Chartered Accountants so you can be 100% sure that they know their subject material and are teaching from direct experience.
