Business and Accounting

Accountancy courses open up career opportunities not just in the accountancy companies but in a huge range of public and private sector organisations that have their own finance offices.

Our courses are structured to enable both those new to accountancy and experienced professionals to gain valuable qualifications. From a beginner’s course such as bookkeeping and computerised accounts, you can progress through to the advanced Level 4 with us.

From level 1 onwards the qualifications are with AAT, the awarding body recognised throughout the accountancy industry. Our provision is flexible with most courses for over 19s offered as part time and evening options.

The College of North West London is one of few colleges to offer specialist accountancy courses to students of school leaver age. If you like working with figures and want to set off on a career path with fantastic development opportunities, accountancy could be for you.

Applicants for our courses will have the opportunity to find out more at an interview with a specialist tutor or by talking to us at one of our regular open evenings.

Our Business courses will prepare you to work in an office environment, opening up opportunities to work in thousands of roles in both private and public sector organisations. You will learn transferable administration skills that will be valuable throughout your career, as well as gaining an understanding of the world in which businesses operate. 

This will cover finance, marketing, managing people and entrepreneurship. You will have the chance to take part in practical exercises and competitions designed to develop and showcase your business flair. Students from the College have been successful in national business-skills competitions in recent years.
