What will I study?

If you want to develop a career as an Assistant Accountant, then enrol on this new generation of Gold Standard qualifications as a technical alternative to A Levels. T Levels are developed by the Institute of Apprenticeships; employers and the Department for Education. The T Level Technical Qualification in Accounting is aimed at preparing you for a career as an Assistant Accountant. Assistant accountants are tasked with supporting qualified accountants within the business finance function. They are involved in a wide array of accounting tasks, from report preparation to ledger maintenance, bank statement reconciliation and cash flow forecasting.

 T-Level's are split into three main sections:

1) Technical qualification (TQ): This is the main, classroom-based element. Students will learn about their chosen sectors through a curriculum designed by employers and developed by the awarding organisation (AO) Pearsons.
2) Industry placement: This runs for a minimum of 315 hours (45 days) overall and will give students practical insights into their sector and an opportunity to embed the knowledge and skills learned in the classroom.
3) English, maths and digital provision: These are also built into the classroom-based element of the T Level, meaning students will be given a solid foundation of transferable skills.

By completing these 3 components, students will develop an understanding of a broad range of issues relevant to the sector, including:

- Fundamentals of financial accounting – an understanding of elementary financial principles, concepts and practices and how this content links to relevant accounting, bookkeeping, and business mathematics requirements.
- Professionalism and ethics - an understanding of professional conduct and responsibilities in the workplace and ethical dilemmas for the individual, organisation and professional.
- Data driven innovation and analytics and design thinking – an awareness of key requirements of a data governance framework and understand the main contemporary visualisation tools and when they are best used to support decision making.

In addition to the core content, each student will also complete at least one module of occupation-specific content. The specialism available in the T Level in Accounting is Assistant accountant.

How will I be assessed?

To achieve this T Level learners must meet all requirements of the T Level framework of which the technical qualification is one part. Learners must successfully complete an industry placement, maths and English at level 2 

Learners must complete:
Two externally set exams, One employer-set project and One occupational specialism assessment.

What will this lead to?

The T Level in Accounting aims to progress students into the role of Assistant Accountant through employment or as an Apprentice. Furthermore, the completion of this qualifications gives students the opportunity to progress onto higher education courses and training.
