  • Develop underpinning knowledge of bookkeeping principles.
  • Prepare statements as a preliminary to financial control.

What support is available?

Our qualified tutors will support and guide you in the lessons using a range of resources to help you develop the skills and behaviours required in industry.

Learning Support is also available for those with learning difficulties/disabilities; please let us know on application if you require this service. If you need help or advice on other matters such as welfare and finance, please contact our Course Information Centres at Willesden or Wembley Park.

What social activities can I take part in?

We offer a programme of social and sports activities to all our students; full information is available from the Student Room at your centre of study. Student rooms are available for those who want to play games, meet up with friends or just chill.

What facilities and resources are available?

A range of snacks, hot and cold foods are available to purchase in the canteen and café facilities, as well as vending machines. Halal meat and washing facilities are available at both centres. We have Quiet Rooms for those preferring to reflect. LRCs (libraries) are available at both centres, fully equipped with a wide range of learning materials and qualified friendly staff on hand to support you.

What else should I know?

Our courses are specifically designed to develop your English language skills to support employability instead of simply passing exams. This means that by the end of this course, you should be able to confidently describe bookkeeping transactions to someone who has not studied the course.

Your exam is 90 minutes long and is hand-written so you will need a good standard of written English and the ability to produce accurate work.
