It has long been said that a good accountant is very creative. With the variety of jobs in the accounting field growing by the day, maybe it is time to move it to the Arts Faculty. In fact, some of the qualifications being offered by Universities could easily be mistaken as being from that department.
What is needed is for the training industry to recognise that the academic delivery by universities is not fulfilling the needs of the finance industry, especially for those wishing to start in the industry.
Vocational training continues to deliver to the needs of the industry from the fundamentals through to the more complex transactions, how to use common accounting tools and packages, MYOB, Xero, QuickBooks, reconcile bank accounts, prepare group certificates and on it goes; being able to start in the Finance industry and add value from day one is what the industry is demanding.
A Diploma in Accounting from National Training, equips the holder to add value from the first day they start work.
The theory gained from University studies is nice to have, but is not that practical or applicable when applying for a job or commencing a career in the finance industry.
