Boipelo Mogudi attended the Legal bookkeeping course for paralegals.

 

About Boipelo

"I am currently working as a Billing and Accounts Clerk [at Tshabuse Attorneys] and have been in this role for 8 months now." 

 

Background

"I studied BCom Economics and Econometrics, but could not complete my qualification.  I then started tutoring Mathematics for high school learners until I was eventually employed at a higher institution under their finance department, moved to a fin/tech company to now being at a law firm." 

 

Motivation for enrolling for the Legal bookkeeping course

"My experience and education were not enough for the given role.  I felt the need to have more knowledge so my output, workwise, could be satisfactory." 

 

Key takeaways

"Accounting has never been my first choice, like ever, but we always seemed to cross paths.  So I eventually convinced myself to study it, understand it, and made it make sense to me."

"The lecturer was easy to understand and very interactive which made it easy to ask questions. 
Although I have help from my directors, the responsibility of bookkeeping still lies on me at the firm, and therefore I had to make sure that the knowledge acquired fully benefits the firm and lessens some responsibilities of the directors."

 

On selecting 'online lectures' as a study option

"The lecturer, the material, and the pace really made it palatable and I did not feel too overwhelmed at all, even though I had to get back to work immediately after classes.  So it's possible!"

 

What's next?

"I definitely plan to further my studies.  I gained confidence again after this course."
