Bookkeeping IconICB Level 1 Basic Bookkeeping

At Home Learning College we have completely rebuilt our bookkeeping courses for 2014. We have trained over 50,000 bookkeepers over more than 10 years and have applied all of this experience to guide our students through their bookkeeping training. We previously partnered with ICB for accreditation, but our latest courses are certified by the International Association of Bookkeepers (IAB).

The advantage of the IAB certified route is that it follows the government's Qualifications and Credit Framework (QCF) which is sought after by employers. Having this qualification on your CV could help you stand out from the crowd. Jump straight to our bookkeeping course lost page for a full list of our computerised courses.

Why every organisation and business will benefit from a bookkeeper

There are over £4.9million small businesses in the UK today and each of these require a bookkeeper to monitor cash flow and the day-to-day transactions within their business.

Our IAB Levels 1 to 3 in bookkeeping takes you through basic bookkeeping principles to understand and undertake advanced processes such as the preparation of financial statements for Sole Traders, Partnerships and Not for Profit organisations, and how to prepare financial statements from incomplete records.

Once completed you will be able to work as Ledger Manager, Accounts Manager or Self-Employed Bookkeeper.
