Accounting & Business

Business underpins all industries and studying this subject will provide you with the underpinning knowledge to be employed in a variety of different areas including marketing, finance and human resources, alongside many other sectors. Whatever your starting point we have courses that will give you the skills and knowledge to equip you for a successful future career.

Studying our Business courses will not be boring! From the beginning, you will be given the opportunity to learn from the experts through our guest speakers, experience how businesses work through educational visits and are involved in projects and events that allow you to showcase the skills you have learnt.

The opportunities are endless if you study Business and your CV and future prospects will be enhanced greatly by these excellent and well-respected qualifications.

If you choose to study Accounting, you could achieve a nationally-recognised qualification from the UK’s leading body for Accountancy, AAT.

The AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification offers opportunities to work in a variety of accounting/finance/business environments with employers from small partnerships to multinational companies.  Students from virtually any background have the opportunity to acquire accounting skills from Level 1 to Level 4 and can progress to University after Level 3 or 4, or onto other accounting qualifications such as ACCA, CIMA or ICAEW.  The college offers experienced accounting tutors with dedicated facilities to meet your needs.  Employers Value this qualification very highly.

Accounting Student Case Study:

Meet Amina! Amina has been a student at HRC over many years, obtaining Business and Accountancy qualifications at different levels!

In 2019, Amina was offered an apprenticeship in accountancy, allowing her to gain a level 3 AAT qualification whilst working as an account assistant. On completion of this, Amina decided to complete a level 4 AAT qualification which she has successfully achieved this summer!

Amina’s determination and ambition to increase her employability is remarkable, and proof that hard work pays off as she will soon be claiming her full membership of the AAT!

Work Experience

The Business and Accounting team also have great links with local and national employers meaning the opportunity for work experience and live briefs are never far away.

In May 2018, our Level 2 Business students took part in a Dragon’s Den style challenge to create a business concept, devise a strategy and pitch to five investors to make their concept a reality.

The Business students also regularly work together to host events as part of their qualification. In June 2018 this was a World Cup-themed event designed to raise money for Teens Unite. Activities on the day included penalty shoot-outs, a mix of street food stalls, raffles and virtual football games.
