Many of our qualifications can be funded through a variety of Government initiatives


TDLC have provided training in bookkeeping qualifications since 1996, and since 2012 have been working with JobCentrePlus through our government funded programme, delivering bookkeeping and payroll qualifications to learners seeking work within the financial sector.


We are listed on the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) Register of Training Organisations (ROTO) which enables us to deliver funded qualifications in England and Wales.


We use a unique delivery of blended learning, allowing learners to study on-line and the  flexibility to fit in learning with their domestic and social arrangements.




Aligned to this is a series of workshops that confirm the learners knowledge and allows them to network with other learners to provide vital support that learners need.


TDLC has a team of professionals that provide our learners throughout the programme. Whether their outcome is to add qualifications to existing experience or to provide knowledge and skills to enable the learner to get their chosen job or to support them in developing a new business idea, we will support our learners to achieve their goals.

All our programmes lead to professional qualifications provided, by the International Association of Bookkeepers (IAB).
