Award Year: – The Award Year allows the learner choose between two streams ‘the accounting stream’ and the ‘entrepreneurial’ stream.

These modules have been included for those learners wishing to pursue a career in the accounting discipline and/or wishing to continue and obtain maximum exemptions from one of the Accounting bodies.

This stream develops the learner’s analytical ability and creativity by focusing on entrepreneurship and the design and innovation of business enterprise.
