Why study a Sage course?

Given that over 50% of the UK’s businesses use Sage software to process their payroll, Sage courses are the obvious choice for those wanting to stand out in the field of bookkeeping and accounting. Being able to understand and use many of the Sage software functions saves the business time and money and is therefore an in-demand skill that fares well with employers. Sage certifications also demonstrate your proficiency as an accountant, showing employers that you’re up-to-date on the latest accounting innovations.

Similarly, if you are a business owner in charge of all your financial records, having the know-how to fully take advantage of the many opportunities offered by the software makes the running of your business significantly easier; in addition to keeping your employee relationships intact and hassle-free.

What can I do with a Sage qualification?

Though Sage courses are usually taken up by those already familiar with the field of bookkeeping and accounting, those who are completely new to the concept of payroll also have a lot to gain from doing the course. In both cases, there is the opportunity to boost your earning potential and career prospects. People who hold Sage qualifications can often be found in roles such as:

  • Accounts Assistant
  • Finance Assistant
  • Bookkeeper
  • Payroll Officer
  • International Payroll Manager
  • HR Officer

What courses does Sage offer?

While Sage currently offers a considerable number of courses, those that focus primarily on the software itself and payroll functions remain the most popular and widely-recognised; such as:

  • Sage Payroll
  • Combined Payroll Theory & Sage Payroll
  • Sage 50 Accounts
  • Sage Instant Accounts
