For this unit, you will be required to use your knowledge of bookkeeping and double entry to enter a company’s data into a computerised accounting system.

We base this unit on using Sage Business Cloud software. This is the most popular choice in the industry and is used extensively by employers and accountancy practices. The fundamentals of data entry are covered within this unit but as this is a work entry level we also offer the Sage 50 Professional courses and certificate as an inclusive option. This has proven to be our most popular choice over the years as it provides more employment opportunities.
