Leaving Certificate Accounting students learn how to record, present, interpret and use financial information. In so doing, they are cultivating self-reliance and competence, clarity and accuracy in their thinking as well as developing an understanding and awareness of error and its consequences.

Many skills are practised and developed by Accounting students as they endeavour to produce financial statements and reports – computational skills, organisational skills, problem-solving skills, decision-making skills, presentational skills etc. and students develop an ability to link Accounting with relevant computer applications.

Both management accounting and financial accounting are studied as well as the conceptual framework and regulatory framework of accounting.

Topics covered include:

  • Accounts for non-profit making organisations, sole traders and business organisations
  • Analysis and interpretation of financial statements
  • Costing, budgeting and budgetary control
  • Correction of errors, control accounts and bank reconciliation statements
