Welcome to the Foundation Level

SACOB’s Foundation Level is the first step in the ICB Public Sector Accounting Programme. It is an ideal qualification for students who want to pursue a career in public financial accounting.

This programme can be completed at your own pace, allowing you to keep your daily routines and responsibilities. In order to be eligible, learners must be 16 years or older and have completed grade 11. No previous accounting knowledge will be necessary for students to apply.

Programme Information

The Foundation Level forms part of the Public Sector Accounting stream which is accredited by the ICB (Institute of Certified Bookkeepers), a quality assurance partner of the QCTO.

In this level, students learn valuable insights about essential business functions, and will cover the following courses:

  • Bookkeeping to Trial Balance
