Details: Written by Eleanor Lodge |

Upskilling more than 35,000 learners in the UK each year and operating in more than 30 countries around the world, The Skills Network offer over 30 bookkeeping and accountancy courses with a pass rate of over 93%!

With content ranging from study resources through to level 4 accredited qualifications, our bookkeeping and accountancy offering is closely developed with AAT professionals and delivered via digital means, offering an expert and flexible solution to accountancy training.

Why Accountancy?

As employment of accountants and auditors is projected to grow by almost 10% over the next ten years, with an estimated 80,000 accountancy jobs set to be created in the UK alone, our recent June 2021 Skill Gap Trend report has revealed several accountancy roles, from Finance and Investment Analysts to Bookkeepers and Payroll Managers now fall into the top ten most in demand occupations in the country.

While The Skills Network’s AAT accountancy content provides a practical, internationally recognised finance and accountancy training opportunity for career progression and employment prospects in this field, the transferable skills gained through accountancy training provide wider benefits to the business and the individual.

From critical thinking and organisation to communication and attention to detail, accountancy training provides an opportunity for self-development outside of accountancy roles.

Why The Skills Network for AAT?

Through an AAT qualification, our learners develop practical, real-world skills for application at all levels of business. The Skills Network’s AAT training courses offer an opportunity to enhance expert knowledge, from how to record financial transactions through to in-depth examinations of expenditure.

Our AAT courses are delivered fully online, providing the flexibility to access training in a way that suits the lives of our learners. The Skills Network’s flexible delivery, provides a highly accessible route to qualifying as a fully accredited accountant for individuals throughout the country, while our one to one tutor support and designated learner service advisors offer that human contact to guide our learners through their time with us.
