As the ONLY dedicated bookkeeping organisation in the world to have been appointed by UK Parliament and recognised to award Ofsted regulated qualifications, you could not have arrived at a better place when it comes to finding the right bookkeeping course for yourself.
Whether you want a career change, a career advancement or you are setting up as a professional bookkeeper in practice, the International Association of Bookkeepers (the IAB) has everything a prospective bookkeeper needs to achieve success in this rapidly expanding industry.
To get started, it’s a good idea to take a look at the three ways you can become qualified with the IAB:
- Through an IAB accredited college (not just in the UK, but also in many countries around the world)
- Via Distance Learning from a large choice of learning providers and personal tutors
- Self Study
You can explore all three options in more detail on other parts of this site, for example you can learn more about IAB qualifications here.
If you plan to set up in business as a professionally qualified bookkeeper, then take a look at our Bookkeeping as a Business section.
And you can find out more about Studying at Home with the IAB here.
The IAB also has courses for those who want to become a Payroll Professional. We cover all three levels and all our qualifications (whether for bookkeeping or payroll) are regulated by Ofsted. That means your qualification is accepted by all employers and the UK government as bona-fide.
If you want to learn what it means to be a bookkeeper, then take a look at our mini What is a Bookkeeper guide here.
