Assistant Accountant (AAT) Level 3 Apprenticeship Webinar

Thu 8 Jul 2021


A webinar providing information on the Level 3 Assistant Accountant Apprenticeship presented by West Suffolk College (WSC), in conjunction with the Finance Division. WSC will deliver this apprenticeship.

An Assistant Accountant provides support to internal and external customers and will work predominately either as an assistant accountant within practise or alternatively within the finance function of an organisation. Part of their role will involve assisting in the day-to-day financial activities such as data entry to month-end management accounts and/or year-end financial statements. In addition, the Assistant Accountant may find themselves involved in regulatory financial requirements such as the completion of VAT returns or assisting in the preparation of tax computations.

As well as ensuring full competency as an Assistant Accountant, this standard provides the foundation for progression into a number of career paths in the Accounting sector, including: Audit Trainee, Corporate Recovery Analyst, Credit Controller or Tax Accountant.
