    This course is made up of two units:

    Each unit is assessed by an end of unit externally set examination which covers all of the material covered in each unit. Students who pass both exams will be awarded the AAT Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping.

    Students should have a good level of written and spoken English and Maths, equivalent to GCSE grade ‘C’ or above, or Functional Skills Level 2. Students should also have basic IT skills.


    HOW PROGRESS IS CHECKED DURING COURSE

    Progress is checked throughout the course through the completion of classwork and homework exercises. Progress will also be checked through tutor feedback given to students and through the use of recap exercises at the start of lessons, to enable students to ensure that they have understood the work covered during the previous lesson.


    EXTRA STUDY OR PRACTICE REQUIRED AT HOME

    Students will be required to complete approximately two hours of independent study per week during the course. During the revision period for the end of unit examinations, students should expect to spend considerably longer than this in independent study.
