You will learn through experiencing a varied programme which includes solving simulated problems, lectures, group work, discussions and attempting past exam papers. You will also be required to study away from weekly lectures to ensure exam success.

What else do I need to know?

Please note there will be additional costs for books, materials or other expenses.

What are the entry requirements?

Entry to the Level 2 Certificate is by a grade C in GCSE Maths, an appropriate level of Business English and some accounting experience. Students without any accounting experience are advised to attend a short Bookkeeping course which we offer and this will give an excellent introduction to the accounting process as required in the Level 2 studies.

How is it assessed?

Each unit is assessed by an externally set, computer based examination where a minimum of 70% of the marks are required to demonstrate competency.

What financial support is on offer?

Newcastle and Stafford Colleges Group is pleased to be able to offer financial support to help students meet the costs of attending College.
If you are on state benefits or are on a low income you may be entitled to fee remission towards your course. *This is at the Colleges discretion.

What can I do next?

You can continue with your employment or choose to pursue further study options.
