Here are the top six courses in three of the most in-demand industries, that you should be studying right now:
Whether they’re calculating profits and losses, estimating revenue and expenditures, or simply making sure the books ‘balance’ – Bookkeepers are a core part of any organisation.
But the job expands far beyond manual calculations. Developing proficiency in the latest bookkeeping programs and systems (such as Sage, QuickBooks, and Xero) is also a big part of a Bookkeeper’s day-to-day – making an practical approach to learning essential for anyone looking to break into the industry.
What’s more, a role in bookkeeping is perfectly suited to a ‘work from home’ environment, making it a great choice of career when staying at home is a priority (AKA, right now).
Perfect for: People who like to hit the books.
Top courses: The Bookkeeping and Payroll Training Course and the AAT Level 2 and AAT Level 3 with Practical Accountancy Training Course from KBM Training.
Covering job requirements for bookkeeping and payroll positions, this course will teach you practical skills in bookkeeping, VAT, payroll, and HMRC reporting. You’ll also gain proficiency in key bookkeeping software, such as Sage 50, QuickBooks, Excel, and Xero. It takes 80 hours to complete when studied part-time.
This course bundle teaches you everything you need to know to become AAT qualified – covering modules in bookkeeping transactions and controls, accounts preparation, management accounting, and more. On completion, you’ll also receive expert advice on securing work, and gain connections with potential employers.
Career prospects? Check. Lucrative salaries? Check. Accounts? Checked.
