We offer bookkeeping courses from four different awarding bodies, which are:





You will have the opportunity to start from the very basics with some Level 1 courses, or if you’ve already started your bookkeeping journey, then we also offer Level 2 and 3 courses to develop your pre-existing skills.


Bookkeeping is the activity of keeping records of the financial affairs of a business, ensuring that the records of individual financial transactions are correct, up-to-date, and comprehensive. They will report and track those financial transactions, with reports that show how well the business is doing. Accuracy is absolutely vital in this as each transaction, whether it be a purchase or a sale, must be recorded. All of this provides the information from which accounts are prepared, and there are usually set structures for this in bookkeeping called ‘quality control’. For businesses to be successful, they need to be balancing the books every single month, otherwise, they may struggle to pay for things like stock, suppliers, and even their taxes.


Distance learning takes out the timetable and commute from studying, meaning you can study the same subjects and qualifications, just from home. Having the freedom to choose when you want to learn means it doesn’t have to get in the way of other life commitments, such as a job, or a family to look after.


When studying a bookkeeping course with us, you will have a tutor on hand to help you with any questions, as well as to guide you through your course. You will always have support, meaning you’ll never be alone.
