Don’t let me disappoint you!

I get so many potential students coming to see me about Sage Line 50 courses and I would love to enrol them there and then but often I’d be wasting their money.

I know all the job adverts ask for a knowledge of Sage Line 50 but many people don’t realise that learning to use the software doesn’t mean you know what to do with the data you put into it.

So I usually recommend potential students take a two-minute test to see whether they’re ready for Sage and in about 80% of cases, they’re not.

You see, Sage is an accounting package and if you don’t speak the language of accounts, you’ll be lost.

You have to have the innate ability to spot an accounting or arithmetical error and know what to do about it before you’re let lose on Sage and that’s why I believe most students will get better value out of taking a manual bookkeeping course first.

At Pitman Training in London (Holborn and Notting Hill) and also in Manchester, we offer a manual bookkeeping course for 3 levels, beginners, intermediates and advanced.

By starting off with a pencil and calculator, working on real numbers, you are forced to learn to think like a bookkeeper, working out what goes where and how to get the books to balance. You develop a kind of sixth sense as to whether or not numbers “look right.”

Each manual bookkeeping course builds on what you learned in the previous course, so you develop increasingly advanced skills as a precursor to learning Sage Line 50.

Once your manual skills have been sufficiently well developed, we move you up to Sage Line 50 and suddenly everything makes sense.

It’s true that you have to pay for each course to get to this level but it’s better than going straight to Sage and then finding out you don’t know what to do with it.

Of course, you don’t have to stop at Sage. We offer payroll courses, Excel courses and loads more to help you find a job as a bookkeeper.

And let’s not forget that these are Pitman Training courses, so your certificates will add real value to your CV.
