The new First Year ATI Apprentices in WCFE along with the Principal, Teaching Staff and WWETB Senior Training Officers.

IF you enjoy a more practical learning approach, Accounting at Waterford College of Further Education (WCFE) may be just the course for you.

You can qualify as an Accounting Technician with WCFE’s two-year work-based education training programme

In this fully-funded programme, you can study at WCFE whilst gaining significant experience working with an employer and earning a salary of at least €19,890 per year.

Apprentices graduate with an industry-recognised Level 6 QQI Advanced Certificate in Accounting, and tuition is funded by the state agency SOLAS.

Students work with their employer four days per week and attend WCFE on the fifth day.

Over the course of the two-year programme students study Financial Accounting where learners develop an understanding of the principles and concepts of financial accounting, technical competency in double-entry bookkeeping and preparation of financial statements for various types of reporting entities.

Advanced Financial Accounting sees learners build on the competencies gained in Financial Accounting, acquiring an understanding of relatively advanced financial accounting transactions, events and skills in preparing and interpreting financial statements.

Business Management provides the learners with knowledge of the business organisations and functions, information systems in business organisations, modern management, leadership, corporate governance, professional ethics and corporate social responsibility.

Taxation provides the learner with the practical and technical skills that will be of benefit to all businesses and individuals, not just those in an accounting environment. The learner will be exposed to Personal and Business taxation such as Income Tax returns, Payroll Administration and VAT Returns.

Advanced Taxation builds on the competencies gained in first year, advanced taxation looks at more technical aspects of Income Tax and VAT but also introduces the learner to more advanced taxation issues such as Corporation Tax for companies and Capital Gains Tax on sale of assets and investments.

Business Law aims to provide learners with an understanding of the key concepts and fundamental principles of law in the context of business and commercial settings.

This module deals with the legalities of setting up a company, running a company and dissolving a company. It also deals with our constitution, civil and criminal law, the Irish courts system, EU law, contract, tort, consumer law and data protection.
