About the Level 2 Introduction to Payroll Systems Certificate

Paying employees is not as simple as a straightforward bank transfer. Particularly in larger companies, there are a number of systems involved to ensure that every employee is paying the correct sum towards taxes, pensions and national insurance. New staff must be added, old staff taken away, and everyone must be paid on time. In some cases, this can be a large task and companies need skilled administrators to lead the process.

The Level 2 Introduction to Payroll Systems Certificate qualification has been designed to educate individuals about the payroll processes. During your online studies you will cover modules in manual systems, gross and statutory pay, the PAYE regime and the NIC regime and statutory and voluntary deductions and net pay. You will also learn about payslips and computerised payroll systems. By the end of your distance learning course, you will be confident and competent when paying staff.

Who should study this course?

Courses like this are beneficial for those looking to find work as a payroll administrator or those already in the role who want to expand their knowledge. This home learning qualification is also useful for new or current business owners who need to set up their own payroll.

When you study at Stonebridge College, we do not ask that you have any prior qualifications. If you are willing to engage in home study, and are motivated to learn about payroll systems, then this qualification will be perfect for you.

What happens after the course?

By the end of your studies, you will be able to work manual and computerised payroll systems. You will know how to handle sick pay, maternity pay and shift pay, as well as being fully versed in employment rights legislation.

If you desire, the qualification could lead to further study opportunities. Previously, people have gone on to study additional home study courses or foundation degrees in payroll management. Some students may even decide to take their studies to undergraduate level.

In many cases, students will choose to secure employment straight after graduating from this course. Individuals in possession of this certificate will be eligible to apply for work in many related roles. Some jobs people may choose include:

  • Payroll administrator
  • Payroll manager
  • Small business owner

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.
