Apprenticeship Standard 488 - Level 2 Accounts/ Finance Assistant (59475)

What topics are covered by the course?

At least 20% of your working week for the duration of the apprenticeship must be spent carrying out new learning relating to the apprenticeship standards. To support you in achieving this, you will study the AAT Level 2 Accounting Certificate:

Bookkeeping Transactions
Bookkeeping Controls
Elements of Costing
Using Accounting Software
Working Effectively in Finance (This will be assessed within the synoptic exam taken at the end of the course)

Who should attend?

Entry Requirements: Certificate evidence of English and maths at level 1 or GCSE grade A*-C (or new grade 9-4). If you do not have these, we can support the development of your English and maths skills through completion of Functional Skills in the relevant subject and one-to-one support. Most employers look for ability in these areas and the majority of university courses require you to have Maths and English GCSEs at A*-C (or new grade 9-4). This is why the development of Maths and English is so important, whatever your field of study.

Apprentices without level 1 English and Maths will need to achieve this level and taken the test for level 2 prior to taking their end point assessment.

What will I be able to do on completion?

Further Study: On completion, the apprentice will be able to apply for the most appropriate level of professional membership aligned within this apprenticeship (Advanced Level 3 apprenticeship)

How will I be assessed?

Assessment will be continuous and take place in both the workplace and the College. There will be a combination of computer-based assessments and projects or work-based evidence.
