Association of Accounting Technician (AAT)
Accounting - the skill needed by businesses everywhere
Accounting is a cornerstone of business. The biggest multinationals, the smallest local enterprises and businesses of every size in between depend upon the talents of people trained in accountancy.
Studying for the AAT Accounting Qualification will give you the skills to work in many different kinds of companies and organisations - and give you the choice of a wide variety of job opportunities. As a qualified accounting professional in a smaller business, you might be the only member of staff who is expert in finance. While in a larger company, you might be part of a wider financial team. Or you might opt to work for yourself after qualifying - providing accountancy services for small businesses and the self-employed.
What is AAT Botswana?
The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) was set up over 25 years ago - and is one of the world’s leading membership organisations for accounting professionals with over 100,000 members. We are dedicated to providing training, support and advice to our members at every stage of their career. When you study for an AAT qualification, you also become a student member of the AAT.
The AAT’s head offices are in London, but since 1998, we have worked with the Botswana Institute of Chartered Accountants (BICA) to form AAT Botswana. This means that as an AAT student in Botswana you have a national office to provide expertise, resources and help during your course.
- Now AAT members and Graduates can apply for BICA membership at Accounting Technician Level.

The Joint Employers Forum The Botswana Institute of Chartered Accountants in conjunction with the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) hosted an Employer’s Forum on the 11th October 2019. The forum geared towards creating a clear understanding of the capabilities and competencies that each professional accounting qualification possesses, the role of professional accounting bodies and how best the employer industry can leverage on these qualifications for effectiveness in the workplace. Also, the forum gave attendants a better understanding of what professional accounting is, a clear framework for recruitment and staff training with regards to professional accounting, as well as interrogate how Government can further create an inclusive environment for professional accounting qualifications amongst others. Statistics from the Institute indicate that to date 4598 accountants have been registered. This is made up of 3215 Accounting Technicians and 1383 Professional Accountants. The BICA membership is drawn from across the different professional accountancy bodies among them being AAT, ACCA and CIMA. The forum brought together senior executives in the Human Resource, Learning & Development and Finance departments from various organizations i.e. Government, parastatals and the private sector.
