Get set for business in January

Barnsley College and University Campus Barnsley (UCB) are offering the opportunity for people to start a range of business-related courses in January 2016.

For those interested in accountancy courses, Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Level 2 Certificate and Level 3 and Level 4 Diploma programmes are available on either a full or part-time basis or as an apprenticeship at the college.

Additionally, the college offers a Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) Operational Level 5 qualification which includes enterprise, financial and performance modules and an operational case study. This is studied on a part-time basis and a 20% discount is available for those who sign up to the full qualification before Friday 8 January 2016.

Aspiring and middle managers can study an Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM) Leadership and Management Level 5 Diploma and the college’s Strategic Leadership and Management Level 7 Diploma is ideal for strategic leaders and managers. Both are part-time courses.

The college also offers a part-time Careers Guidance and Development Level 6 Diploma; a mandatory qualification for those providing careers advice. The college is now one of only a few providers in the region offering this much sought-after qualification.

For people wishing to study a Higher Education course, UCB offers a Higher National Certificate (HNC) in Business for part-time study and a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Business and Management which is available on both a full and part-time basis.

Julie Beaumont, Head of Business and Management Services, said: “We are proud to offer a range of varying qualifications for aspiring and practising managers, accountants and careers advisors. We have a range of different routes and pathways available to enable people to progress and develop in their current career or to help them make that career change they have been looking for.

“We would love to hear from anyone interested in a course, so we can be part of their journey to future success and maybe even see them in their cap and gown at our next graduation ceremony.”
