Advanced Diploma - AAT Level 3

Advanced builds on the knowledge gained in the Foundation level. If you work in accounts or have studied accountancy before, you may be able to start at this level. You’ll learn complex accounting techniques, and master a number of accounting disciplines including financial processes, advanced bookkeeping, final accounts and ethical practices for accountants.

This level will encourage you to master more complex accounting principles in both Bookkeeping and Management Accounting. You’ll develop the technical skills to start, or progress, your career in accountancy and this will allow you to continue with your studies onto Level 4.

To pass this level you’ll need to study five units (also known as subjects), which are all mandatory. Four of the units are examined individually and there is also a synoptic assessment that you’ll take towards the end of the level, which incorporates the final two units as well as drawing on all of the other units you’ve studied at this level.

The area you will cover include:

  • Advanced Bookkeeping.

  • Final Accounts Preparation.

  • Management Accounting: Costing.

  • Indirect Tax.

  • Advanced Synoptic Assessment.

The Apprenticeship standard details the essential Knowledge, Skills and Behaviours that somebody would need to demonstrate to be a successful Assistant Accountant, this includes, Business Awareness, Ethics, Communication, Embracing Change and Problem Solving. Apprentices will need to show they are competent in all the areas detailed in the standard when they take End Point Assessment.

The Knowledge areas of the standard will typically be covered through completion of the AAT qualification. Skills and Behaviours are developed through workshops, e-learning, workplace training and practical experience provided ‘on-the-job’.

  • A passionate individual who is keen to pursue a career within the financial function of a large business.
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills.
  • Good communication and interpersonal skills.
  • A team player with an eagerness to thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment.
  • Adaptable and open to learning new skills, systems and technologies.
  • A resilient attitude and progressive approach are essential to succeeding within our fast-paced industry.

Upon completion of the 18 month program we would like to put the candidate through their remaining exams - the aim is that they would be a chartered accountant within 5 years.

Benefits include:

  • 20 days plus bank holidays.
  • Access to the Cranswick Package which includes Cycle to Work Scheme, Free Parking, Discounted products, ‘Feed your Wellbeing’ platform, ‘Hapi’ discounts app and buying extra holiday entitlement.
