Level 1 Accounting
Teacher in Charge: Mr B. Wedlake
Accounting is the language of business. It is an international language, which provides global opportunities for graduates who wish to combine travel with their career. At Level 1, students learn to prepare financial records for a small business. They also learn how to extract meaning from financial statements and communicate this to clients. These skills are required by every business, in fact every organisation, which is why accountants are in such high demand. From working for one of the Big Four to CFO or CEO of a large company or Government entity, to running your own business, the possibilities are extensive and rewarding.
In order to complete course requirements, it is expected that students will attempt up to four achievement standards during the year. Standards offered at this level comprise 17 credits.
