I took over the accounts for my Dad’s business and needed more professional knowledge of accounts and working with Sage. My course helped me to enhance my understanding of bookkeeping processes and to spot errors in my previous work. The tutors were very patient with me and helped me to understand the course material thoroughly.” Sharon Joynes, ICB Level 2 Associate

The course is taught as a blended learning programme through a mixture of guided self-study and face-to-face workshops. There are two face-to-face workshops, both held through weekend sessions - sessions start on Saturday morning and finish Sunday afternoon in either Birmingham or London. Both workshops for each tutorial group will be held in the same location (London or Birmingham) to give you the choice at the point of enrolment of which location best suits your needs.

As this is a practical blended learning program, you will be assessed through demonstration of your knowledge and understanding in written assignments and through demonstration of your practical skills in workshops. This will give you the chance to put your learning into practice and interact both with your tutor and fellow students without having to arrange for day release or fit your commitments around evening classes, as with typical CIPD training programmes.
