Overview

About the Level 3 Essential Bookkeeping Certificate

To put it simply, book keepers are in charge of keeping the books. By this, we mean that they are responsible for recording financial transactions for a business or organisation. Bookkeeping is the first step of the accounting process, and often bookkeepers will assist in preparing work for the accountants. Accountants will then interpret, analyse and report on the information.

This distance learning course has been designed to help you develop as a bookkeeper. The course itself aims to help students define industry specific language and understand the bookkeeping basics. During their time at learndirect, individuals will learn about subjects such as: VAT calculations, cashbooks, wages and salaries and credit control.

Who should study this course?

Essentially, this home learning course is bookkeeping for beginners. Whether you want to find employment as a bookkeeper or you are starting out in business, studying this bookkeeping course online will help you to understand the processes.

Here at learndirect, we don’t ask for our students to have any prior qualifications. All you need is the ability to access our online portal, the motivation to keep up with your home study schedule, and an interest in developing your bookkeeping skills.

What happens after the course?

By the end of the course you will have a fundamental understanding of what it takes to be a bookkeeper. You will be familiar with the processes and be capable of performing them independently. If you enjoyed studying, you may even choose to progress to an accounting qualification.

If you don’t fancy further study after this bookkeeping short course, you will be eligible to apply for a number of bookkeeping roles. If you are in the process of starting up your own business, you will now be able to effectively manage your own finances. This qualification can lead to jobs such as:
