- Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT)
The AAT is the largest, most recognised entry level accounting qualification in the industry, with a presence in over 100 countries. Their qualifications are recognised by some of the largest employers in the UK and is often the first qualification of choice for anyone wanting to embark on an accounting career.
- Continued Professional Development (CPD)
We recognise that those already working in an accounting or bookkeeping environment must keep their knowledge up to date. For this purpose we have had specialist courses accredited by the CPD Certification Service, allowing us to provide our expert training, and providing certification based on assignment work, with no final exam.
We are immensely proud that the hard work of our tutors, students and our support services have been recognised many times over. We work hard as a college to ensure our students are properly supported, and they reward us with their own dedication and hard work. Anything is possible with hard work, as these success stories show.
Why become a bookkeeper/accountant?
The UK has over 5 million private sector businesses, a number which is growing by around 250,000 per year. An even more impressive figure – and one especially relevant for you – is that 99% are micro, small and medium sized enterprises (MSMEs).
Many of these MSMEs will need help to fulfil the two most important legal requirements they’re asked to by HMRC: returning financial reports each year and the recording and paying of any staff. It is a legal requirement to maintain financial records and submit accurate reports to the relevant authorities as regards tax, VAT PAYE etc. Many MSMEs struggle to keep up with the recording of financial details, tax returns, VAT returns etc…and sadly mistakes can prove very costly!
Ideal Schools provides a complete range of bookkeeping, payroll and taxation courses to help you become a self-employed bookkeeper or work within a financial environment.
