Processing bookkeeping transactions – This will introduce students to the double entry bookkeeping system and associated documents and processes. The course progresses to the stage of extracting an initial trial balance before any adjustments are made.

Control accounts, journals and the banking system – Looks in more detail at the cash book and petty cash book and introduces the reconciliation of control accounts. Students will also learn to make adjustments through the journal and re-draft the initial trial balance once adjustments have been made.

Basic Costing – Introduces the workings of a basic costing system and its place in the organisational information systems, as well as recording and extracting data and providing information on actual and expected costs.

Work Effectively in Accounting and Finance is designed to develop a range of transferable skills to enable a student to work independently and as part of a team. Attention is also given here to establishing an effective standard of literacy and numeracy.

Computerised Accounting – This unit introduces a computerised accounting application (Sage) and shows students how to input and process data for business transactions including sales and purchases, receipts and payments, and also prepare management and period end reports.
