This is an interesting and practical subject which provides a valuable insight into financial aspects of commercial and non-commercial organisations. The course is aimed at students who are interested in a career in Business and Finance.
The course allows you to develop knowledge of accounting techniques and assess their relevance and limitations as an information system.
You will be proficient at interpreting accounting information and producing results for a variety of interested parties e.g. management, shareholders and employees, while assessing the influence of social, economic, legal and technological factors on accounting decisions.
Standard A Level entry requirements apply. For this course you must also have Grade 6 in Maths.
On successful completion you may choose to go on to Higher Education, although many students now secure Apprenticeships with accountancy practices and commercial organisations and undertake further professional accountancy qualifications.
