AAT Accounting Apprenticeship Course via The Training Place of Excellence

The Training Place of Excellence 
AAT Accounting Apprenticeship Course 

The Training Place of Excellence aims to provide high quality accounting training, apprenticeships and work placements to enhance the career prospects of individuals pursuing a career in accounting and finance.  

We focus on providing a vibrant learning professional environment for all students in order for them to achieve excellence in their qualifications and work. 

Our training is geared to provide individuals with the necessary practical skills to complement their accounting courses and qualifications to enhance employment skills. 

We have carefully structured each of our accountancy training programs in order for each candidate to get the best of skills needed to compliment their current knowledge and experience to get into an accounting job in the current employment market.   

Structure for our apprentices 

Students are expected to attend classes one day a week completing the AAT Accounting Qualification alongside working within the accounting and financial services sector. 

Initially, students that lack accounting experience will be placed in a voluntary role with St Mary Accounting Services, where they will take on the role of an accounts assistant and shadow a chartered certified accountant, working on live client accounts. 

The work experience consists of tasks such as 

Cashflow forecasts 
Accounts Receivable duties 
Accounts Payable duties 
Bookkeeping using Sage, Xero and Excel 
Management Accounts 
Annual Accounts, Taxation and many more 

Placements and Apprenticeships 

Students are given a job strategy and a fair opportunity to be put forward for our roles within the accounting and financial services sector. 

Additionally, students receive support in interview preparation and marketing themselves for attractive apprenticeships and employment opportunities. 

Furthermore, once students are placed into suitable roles they stop attending work experience to accommodate for their employment with our clients.


  1. Since I have joined the course I have worked as an accountant in a tax firm and I now currently work in another as a Purchase ledger accounts manager.
    The course has helped me develop my accounting knowledge, it has also helped me develop my technical accounting skills.
    Being able to have this course on my CV has made me a strong candidate for many positions especially having work experience in 2 different companies which was provided by this training provider.

  2. When I first started with the Level 2 AAT course I was not working in a accounting related job, I worked in property management. After 6 months I got a new job working as a general accountant for a law firm and through this I have now gotten a job working within the accounts department of a property management business. The course has taught me the various accounting knowledge that is useful within my profession and my proficiency using sage, excel which helps when learning other new accounting softwares e.g proprietary legal specialised software and quickbooks.

  3. When I first enrolled onto the Level 2 AAT course I haven't been working. Being new to the accounting field, the course has helped me significantly into gaining the technical knowledge I need to become an accounts assistant. During my AAT Level 2 I had work experience for around 4-5 months at the college, I was taught about the basics of bookkeeping. Then after some time I got a job at an accounting firm as a junior accounts assistant (bookkeeping) which was provided by the training provider. I can say with confidence that studying this course at this particular college has opened doors for me and given me an insight into the industry.

  5. When I started with Level 2 AAT course, I didn’t have a job and neither did I go to uni. I decided I needed a change so I started researching and found The Training Place Of Excellence. I enrolled and now it’s helped me a lot. I didn’t have any experience whatsoever but my dedication to work made me go there and learn and now I am working in a firm that I enjoy and I’m still learning more and more daily. I can say this has helped me a lot and I can recommend this course to anyone out there looking to get involved. It’s worth it.

  6. I learned about the training place of excellence around a year ago when I was first looking into what the accounting industry had to offer. I began level 3 here last month and I believe I have developed my accounting skills and knowledge to a point where I believe I can achieve the goals I've set for myself. I have not yet had work experience in an accounting position but it is something I would be interested in as it would allow me to develop workplace skills to give me that added confidence when I begin working for a company in the future. Overall, I have enjoyed my time here so far and I look forward with excitement at what the future may hold for me. - Kyle Bishop

  7. I first found the training place of excellence when I knew what I wanted to do, which was accounting, but I did not know where to start. Luckily, I stumbled across them on indeed and I have to say it is one of the greatest things to have happened to me as there is not a better place to help guide you on the path to success. I have just completed level 2 of the AAT qualification and will soon begin level 3. I know that any challenges I may face with the level 3 course I will get through them as the training place of exellence treat you like family and genuinely want to see you succeed. I am glad to be apart of the training place of exellence family and look forward to future success with them.

  8. I found the training place on the internet as I wanted to become an accountant. When I got there, I didn't understand most of the work. Thankfully with help from the staff, I have begun to understand the basics of accounting. The training place also helped me get a job with an accountancy firm. I have worked there for a year and have enjoyed learning there everyday. I am happy to be apart of the training place and looking forward to the future.

  9. I want to be an Accountant and to do this I joined the Training place of Excellence where I did work experience. during the course of the apprenticeship I worked for 2 months at RRB Accountants and I also worked at Ford Rhodes Accountants where I enjoyed learning there and being part of the team. I am happy to be a part of The Training Place Of Excellence and I am looking forward to doing the ACCA Course.

  10. I first heard about The Training Place when I was looking into accounting courses and by chance, I happened to come across them online. I went for an interview with them and I managed to start my AAT Level 2 studies soon after. With their help and support, I was able to get a job role as an Accounts Assistant 2 months into my apprenticeship, which I am still currently employed in (3 years later). Throughout the time I have studied at The Training Place, there has always been a positive learning environment and the staff are always friendly and willing to help you. I am grateful for all the support they have given me and will always be happy to be part of the Training Place.

  11. I heard of The training place from a friend, at that time I completed my AAT level 2 but wants to enrol into an apprenticeship scheme for Level 3 & 4. I never had practical experience. The training place helped me, and I was able to do a voluntary role with St Mary Services. From the help of the training place, I managed to find a job with an accounting firm, and I am still currently employed. Throughout my time at the training place, It has been a fantastic experience. The staff and team are helpful and always wants the best for you as an individual.
