Business Finance

About the Level 2 Business Finance Certificate

This short course will teach you about the decisions underpinning corporate finance and give you the financial tools that could help you progress in your job role.

Over the suggested 100 hours of study, you will learn about book keeping, credit control, and notions of costing and pricing. You will learn to apply tools of management accounting with modules on budgets, cashflow, profit and loss which will enable you to ultimately create management reports essential in any business decision making process.

Who should study this course?

Middle and senior managers deal with a wealth of financial issues within organisations. This course introduces fundamental finance concepts, enough to offer a solid overview to any manager regardless of their area of expertise or qualifications.

None of the courses at Stonebridge Associated Colleges require prior experience in the intended subject of study. To successfully complete this short-term course in finance all you need is a means to access the online study materials and the motivation to finish it.

What happens after the course?

At the end of this finance course you will have a solid understanding of practical financial issues that take place in a business. You will be able to devise debt recovery procedures, conduct break even analyses, manage cash and cashflow and draw up basic financial reports. You can follow up your studies with a degree in finance, in a higher education institution. All the same you could apply your knowledge directly to the job role you already have.

Financial skills bring a real opportunity to any business professional. If you work as a retail manager, or a data analyst this type of course could set you aside from your peers in terms of career progression. If you want a professional change this type of study could help you towards positions like:

  • Chartered accountant
  • Economist
  • Stockbroker

The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 2 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
