GPA Solutions is offering a range of QQI Level 5 business awards catering for learners wishing to advance their business skills or for those who simply wish to gain an introduction to payroll or computerised accounts.
This year sees the start of two courses, a manual and computerised payroll award and a manual and computerised bookkeeping award (Sage 50 ).
The QQI Level 5 payroll skills course will commence on November 27, over four days one day a week. Learners will acquire a thorough knowledge of basic PAYE computations to include the cumulative, week one, and emergency tax basis. Learners will learn and understand PRSI and USC computations, how to deal with starters and leavers, file Revenue forms, and year end procedures in both a manual and computerised context.
The Sage 50 accounts course will run for five days over four weeks, commencing November 22 in Galway. Learners will experience setting up a company, entering source documents in the various day books, and preparing debtors' and creditors' balances and reports. Learners will learn to produce VAT reports, bank reconciliation, and monthly profit and loss and balance sheet reports.
Both courses are delivered through lectures, case studies to resemble a real business scenario, group discussion, and assignments. Additional online resources are also available to all learners.
Funded places are available on these courses for eligible jobseekers.
