Flexible delivery without compromising quality

Our AAT programmes are delivered through blended learning, with training both online and on campus. With evening classes available too, our AAT programmes provide the highest quality training for your staff in a way that suits your business. Our adaptable approach provides your business with a cost-effective, flexible way to bring invaluable skills into your business.

Your employees can choose to complete the AAT qualifications as a part-time course or an apprenticeship - they will receive the same AAT qualification for whichever path they choose. If you choose the apprenticeship route, this professional training can be funded using your apprenticeship levy, or, if you are not a levy payer (your annual wage bill is less than £3 million), you will pay just 5% of the training costs.
