As we build our Work-Integrated Learning opportunities across all six campuses of the College of New Caledonia, we are interested in working with employers like you to offer students experiential learning related to the core competencies of the Bookkeeping Certificate. The work term enhances student learning and you have an important mentorship role to play. The college offers an employer orientation and ongoing support throughout the term. Join CNC as we work to build and retain our region’s future workforce. Contact the Education Developer for WIL for more information.

Throughout the duration of the program, students follow a case study where they keep the books for a simulated company named KBC Decorating.

  • As students progress through the program they learn and do by incorporating the skills acquired in each course into the regular bookkeeping cycle of KBC for one calendar year.
  • These activities include analyzing transactions, journalizing and posting to special journals and general ledgers, generating balance sheets, year-end statements, payrolls, taxes, and integrating computerized bookkeeping software.
  • Additional simulations are also incorporated into other stages of the program.
  • By the end of the program, students have a depth of understanding with both manual and computerized bookkeeping processes, and are ready for a career in the Bookkeeping or Accounting industries.

Many students are available for work experience, internships or for hire at the end of a semester following final exams. Many of our programs end in the spring. So be sure to connect with us in the fall or January/February with postings.
