Course Content

The aim of this course is to enable learners to operate computerised accounts software (Sage Line 50) to carry out routine accounting tasks. These tasks include being able to create accounts, process accounting information in respect of the sales and purchase ledger, understanding how to use batch control sheets and being able to produce accounting reports. They will learn accounting terminology, features of accounting software compared to manual book keeping, the advantages & disadvantages to users of different types of accounting software. Learners will also complete a bank reconciliation, remittances & a greater variety of reports to those on the level 1 course.
This is a distance learning course which will enable learners to work at a pace & time to suit them. However, learners will be expected to complete a minimum of 3 hours per week. The expected course length is 10 weeks. However, some learners may wish to fast-track & finish sooner.
Students will be monitored using remote software in order to ensure that they are progressing through the course.
This course is suited to learners who are interested in an introduction to accounting & who are considering moving onto the AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) courses. This could include those with no prior knowledge of accounting or those who already have some practical knowledge.
