Accounting & Business

With high standards of teaching and a track record of student success, a business or accounting course at Barnfield College will open the door to a huge variety of careers.

You’ll develop the skills needed to flourish in either discipline, as well as the academic experience to progress to Higher Education.


A qualification in business is a stepping stone into a wide range of careers, from project management to human resources, marketing to business analysis. And our highly experienced team will make sure you’re equipped with all the skills and knowledge that employers are looking for.

We’ll help you improve your confidence and business know-how through practical activities, to ensure you leave with a highly transferable skill-set and strong work ethic. Communication, commercial awareness, time management, leadership, negotiation and client management are just some of the many skills you’ll develop. You’ll also be well-prepared for employment in a wealth of areas – marketing, human resources, project management, events, administration, and more.


Our accounting courses are a great step towards your first accounting role, or promotion in an existing role. With a combined teaching and workplace experience of over 30 years, our team of lecturers will make sure you’re well prepared to be successful.

We offer Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) courses at a range of levels, with full and part-time study options available, allowing you to fit the qualifications around your schedule. And if you’re brand new to accounting, our evening courses in manual and computerised bookkeeping will be a great starting point.

After your course, you could progress to higher accounting qualifications, and we can help you access an Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) qualification.
