If you are driven, professional, have an eye for numbers, and enjoy problem solving then the Accounting T Level could be your next step towards your future career.
The Accounting T Level is the equivalent size of 3 A Levels and is aimed at preparing you for a role as an assistant accountant. Assistant accountants are tasked with supporting qualified accountants within the businesses and financial organisations. They are involved in a wide range of accounting tasks, from report preparation to ledger maintenance, bank statements reconciliation, and cash flow forecasting.

You will also participate in an industry placement across both years of the course to gain valuable industry experience and develop wider professional skills.
