National Certificate in Business Accounting

This qualification provides the student with the knowledge, understanding, skills and experience to become a junior management accountant. This will aid both individual development of the learner along a path of life-long learning and social transformation through the formal acknowledgement of competencies, skills and knowledge through the attainment of a registered qualification thereby enhancing the employment prospects of students.

To provide employers and others, with an adequate basis for assuring that those students gaining the qualification, are competent to act as junior management accountants for companies and other organisations, whether in manufacturing, commercial or service organisations, in either the public or private sectors of the economy within South Africa.

The National Certificate in Business Accounting gives students access to the Accounting profession at the first level, as well as access to all sectors and organisations that require an Accounting function to be performed. This qualification is suitable for students who want a career in the following job positions: Assistant Cost Accountant, Assistant Accountant, Assistant Management Accountant and Deputy Financial Manager. The qualification is not restricted to learners occupying positions in the Accounting profession, but is applicable to people in other related financial positions such as Accounts Clerks and Bookkeepers.

The Certificate serves to increase skills in the Accounting sector. Students who have completed the National Certificate in Business Accounting will have the necessary financial skills to be self-employed in the Business Accounting field, contributing to job creation by possibly employing others in their small businesses and thereby ultimately contributing to the reduction of unemployment in South Africa.

The qualification provides practical experience for the student through its learning content and assessment procedures. Holders of this qualification should require less initial on-the-job training on entering employment, as they would have already mastered the competencies. This will reduce the amount of non-productive time associated with new entrants to the Accounting profession.
