The programme trains learners in the latest accounting procedures, accountancy based computer software, electronic methods of account books balancing, among others. Because accounting deals with money, a lot of diligence and caution is required in undertaking the duty of an accountant. Learners are trained to pay attention to detail, be attentive, and mathematically savvy.
Applicants must have passes in Financial Accounting and any two (2) of the following subjects: Business Management, Economics, Principles of Costing and Elective Mathematics.
Apart from taking up jobs as teachers and lecturers of accountancy and mathematics in schools, graduates from the programme are similarly equipped to competently take up jobs as accountants, auditors and financial analysts with consultancy firms and other business entities. The in depth nature of the programme also makes it possible for learners to easily veer into other career areas such as taxation, financial analysis with stock trading, among others. Being the trainers of accountants, graduates from the programme are the preferred choice when consultancy firms in particular go hunting for professionals to run their operations.
