Entry Requirements for Accounting Technician Course
Grade 12 with Accounting, Mathematics or Mathematical Literacy, or an employee who is performing bookkeeping or clerical duties who do not have accounting qualification. Prior to acceptance the learner will write an aptitude test aiming to assist a learner in discovering their core purpose for their existence in life, as research shows that, mostly many of people are locked within wrong careers and this leads to non-productivity within their respective work environment. If the applicant is applying to be under SIYAKHULISA PROGRAMME he/she will go through an interview process.
Accounting Technician qualification is built as a progression pathway that takes learners from a foundational level through to an advanced level of accounting knowledge, skills and competencies.
The teaching and learning approach is focused on the application of the newly acquired skills from qualification to the workplace, the resultant outcome is a fit for purpose employee who is able to function independently, produce error free work and make a meaningful contribution to business performance.
Accounting Technicians play a vital support role to entrepreneurs in all sectors of the economy to improve organizational productivity and efficiency, thus the qualification enables accounting technicians to occupy diverse roles including senior bookkeeper, debtors’ clerk, creditors’ clerk and junior accountant.
Accounting Technicians are able to execute a wider scope of job content such as: Preparation of the books of the first entry like cash book, balancing and monitoring of debtors and creditors, completing and submitting of income tax , VAT and Employees returns, preparing financial reports, assisting with budget preparation.
Zame Mthiyane says: “Having been in the accounting and finance sector for the past 14 years we have realized that there is a need of internal accounting personnel within the growing business to support the entrepreneur in recording day to day activities. Another challenge is that of a startup business, where an entrepreneur requires services of an accountant but affordability at this level is a problem and this results in non-compliance. In solving these challenges, PZ Finance Institute (the then PZ Consulting (Pty) Ltd ) has come up with a concept of training two kinds of candidates through Accounting Technician Qualification to bridge this gap.”
How the PZ Finance Institute system works:
This is the new culture of supporting SMMEs’ as well as offering our youth with permanent employment.
Financial Administrators: will work hand in hand with Entrepreneurs to manage financial tasks e.g. processing of financial information, preparation of financial reports and interpretation thereof, controlling cash-flow systems and budgeting.
Accounting Entrepreneurs: will be servicing Small and Micro Businesses under the guidance of PZ Finance Institute – under a mentorship programme called “SIYAKHULISA”
We are moved and persuaded to craft and make more leaders of impact in their own right who will be able to stand and present forth reality and essence of what is required in growing and affecting our economy.
