This qualification is part of the Qualification and Credit Framework (QCF), which became fully operational in September 2010. Qualifications within the framework are made up of units and each unit is given a credit value, where one credit represents 10 hours of learning time. The title of every qualification within the new framework will contain details of the size (award/certificate/diploma), level of difficulty (Entry to level 8) and general content of the qualification.
Learners studying without being attached to an IAB accredited training centre, should contact the IAB for further information.
The IAB Level 3 Award in Computerised Bookkeeping is aimed at individuals who already have a good working knowledge of the software, and wish to further their studies of computerised bookkeeping within a working business environment gaining a qualification at Level 3 of the National Framework from a point of no previous knowledge or having achieved the IAB Level 2 Award in Computerised Bookkeeping. It could also be used by those candidates who have good practical knowledge and skills and wish to gain an accredited qualification in the subject. Owners of small businesses may also find this qualification useful as it gives coverage of wide range of tasks that can be carried out using commercially available accounting software.
