ABOUT THE COURSE

This course offers you an introduction to accounting, giving you the core knowledge and skills needed to progress either to employment or to further study. This qualification could also help you to progress by offering career development, if you are already working in an entry-level finance role.

Using accounting software, you will develop the professional skills and behaviours needed to contribute effectively in the workplace. Working in accountancy requires good communication skills, IT skills and an understanding of the business environment, all of which are covered in this qualification.
