Our exclusive Level 1 Accounting Certificate Programs provide an introductory overview of corporate accountancy and financial management. Course content is distributed over three engaging modules as follows:
Unit 1: Accounting Basics
The course begins with a detailed introduction to the basics of accountancy, in which candidates are familiarised with the objectives, advantages and limitations of accountancy in a business setting. A breakdown of the accountancy cycle is studied, alongside the component steps in the accountancy process, the consequences of ineffective accountancy and more.
Unit 2: Accountants’ Roles and Responsibilities
Course module two turns attention to accountancy personnel, along with the roles and responsibilities of those who work in corporate accountancy. Learners also study the concepts of credit and debit, alongside essential accounting terminology and the typical hierarchy within an accountancy team.
Unit 3: Key Financial Reports
Concluding the course, module three provides a detailed overview of some of the most important financial reports in an accountancy setting. Examples of which include profit and loss reports, cash flow statements, journals, business ledgers and other subsidiary books. How to effectively analyse key financial reports is also discussed in-depth.

Qualified accountants have the freedom to work under their own terms in almost any location worldwide. While some dream of starting their own businesses, others choose to pursue positions with established accountancy firms. In both instances, a career in accountancy brings the guarantee of competitive earnings and long-term job security. Salaries vary enormously in accordance with experience and location, though typically begin around the £20,000 mark for entry-level accountancy roles.
