We have a limited number of places still available on our Accountancy, Business and Leadership and Management courses starting in January 2023.

Rated outstanding by Ofsted, we offer a full range of courses and qualifications from Level 1 to Level 6 in all areas of business. All courses are suitable for those who are just starting Further Education or are looking to gain new qualifications, retrain or start a new career.

“We offer a wide range of courses, with more planned to launch in the coming months, so regardless of whether you want to continue your education after competing your GCSEs or you’re an adult looking to gain a higher-level qualification, we’re sure to have a course for you.”

We offer a range of courses from Level 1 to Degree level, including AAT Accountancy; Access to Higher Education, Business Administration; Customer Service; Information, Advice and Guidance; Leadership and Management; Mentoring and Team Leading; and Retail.

The courses can be studied either full-time, part-time, as an apprenticeship or on a distance learning basis, meaning students can study around their existing work and family commitments.

Angela Kerley, Head of Department for Business and Management at Barnsley College, said: “Business is a fantastic subject to study as it allows students to gain a breadth of knowledge that can open doors to such a career in a number of sectors.

George Sanders, a former Level 2 Business and Level 3 Bookkeeping Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) student, added: “This qualification was ideal for me, as I love sorting numbers and making sure everything is balanced. I’d recommend studying here as the teachers are great! They provide lots of support and treat you well. They understand me and I’m not afraid to ask for help.”
