Our Bookkeeping and Accounts course takes you through the process from first principles to final accounts, giving you an in-depth knowledge and set of skills which will make you an asset in any business.
You will learn the fundamentals of bookkeeping, such as the ledger, the cash book, and sales and purchases. You'll explore double entry book-keeping and trial balances, before going on to learn about the journal, bank accounts and balance sheets.
The Bookkeeping and Accounts course will also lead you into the bigger picture of business finance. You'll look at management accounting and the different systems used in corporate settings. Budgets and budget control will be explained, along with cash flow statements and financial analysis.
Once you have completed this book-keeping course you will be ready for accounting roles and bookkeeping jobs, and for possible further study to take your career even further.
You don't need any previous experience or qualifications to enrol in our Bookkeeping and Accounts course. That's because we believe in making home study - and a rewarding future - as accessible as possible.
The Bookkeeping and Accounts course will give you the skills you need to begin a career in accounting and bookkeeping. However, to progress further, you will find further study a definite advantage. The Bookkeeping and Accounts course is the ideal lead into the IAB Level 2 Certificate and Level 3 Diploma courses.
On completion, you'll receive the ICS Bookkeeping and Accounts Diploma.
Assessments are a great way of checking your progress. During your Bookkeeping and Accounts course, you'll complete seven unit assessments and a final end of course assessment.
Many questions have multiple parts (i.e. Question 1 a, b, c, etc.). Short answer questions normally require you to write between a sentence and a paragraph.
Scenario-based questions test that you can apply the knowledge you have learnt from the course to imaginary scenarios. For example, you may be given some information about an imaginary business and then be required to prepare its accounts.
Generally, assessments can be sent to us online via the ICS Student Community: it's the fastest way to receive your results.
Because we're experts in home learning, ICS knows about and offers all the support you need along the way.
You'll gain access to our study materials via our ICS online Student Community. These materials have been specially designed for distance learning by experts in your chosen field.
