    I am in the USA right now and in the process of moving back to the UK after 16 years and I have my HNC in Business and want to study AAT level 2. I just wanted to know if it was worth it ? And if I can get a job in Accounts while studying for level 2? What should I do? Anyone know any other options? I really want to make enough to support myself without my parents.

    Have a look at the entry requirements for some accountancy apprenticeship programmes. There's plenty of them, depending on where you are willing to work.

    So should I do AAT and the apprenticeship at the same time?

    Some apprenticeships might put you through AAT. It's not my area of expertise, but the apprenticeships will put you brought formal qualifications to help you become trained and appropriately qualified.

    I work across various sectors, just apprenticeships for accountancy firms isn't one of them.

    Pursue something you are going to enjoy, or at least think you will enjoy.

    Have a look at apprenticeships websites like ratemyapprenticeship or Milkround School Leavers. The first step is really to do some research and think about what kind of job you would like and in what type of environment. Business is a big term and pretty much covers everything and anything in a corporate environment. There will be a 101 directions you could go within that.

    Your HNC is more than likely a level 4 qualification, and so you should be able to apply for a level 4 or 5 apprenticeship.
