A qualification in accounting will always be helpful – whether it's used professionally or personally. This course helps students to understand the responsibilities of the accountant and the impacts of their recommendations on the business and the wider environment.

Students will build knowledge and understanding of key concepts, principles and techniques that they can apply to real-life scenarios, developing the ability to solve problems logically, analyse data methodically, make reasoned choices and communicate effectively.

A logical approach to problem solving and an interest in business is important but many enterprising and key skills will be developed that are crucial to life in the 21st century.

The qualification has two key areas of study: 

Financial accounting & Management accounting

How will it be delivered?

The course is very much based around students being given the relevant information and then completing questions to test and apply their knowledge in an accounting situation. This still lends itself to a number of different teaching styles and approaches however the course is very student centred.

Entry requirements
