Why create Free Book-Keeping Courses Online UK?
Many distance learning companies are charging very expensive fees to study their home study courses, and students are offered little more than a workbook and a help line. When Michael studied book-keeping, night school was relatively cheap and a university education was free!
Michael believes that students get a raw deal nowadays and these free book-keeping courses online may help a little – we hope so? Many of the courses are written to accompany a course textbook, but if you can’t afford to buy the book then you can always order them for free from your local library.
So you can train to become a book-keeper or an Accounting trainee for free!!
