What were your goals when starting out on your AAT course and why did you choose Accountancy Learning to help you achieve them?
After working in hospitality for many years and finding myself interested in the financial side of the business I decided to turn my life around by beginning my career in accountancy and I can honestly say Accountancy Learning was the best choice. After trying out their free Basic Bookkeeping Taster course and understanding the idea of studies I had no more doubts. They were helpful from day one when I was simply exploring my options and enquiring about courses, not to mention that going forward they also pointed me the right direction with the job search. I have finished Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping and now I’m studying towards Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting which only makes me want to achieve more and more!
How did you find the learning materials, admin team and tutor support?
Accountancy Learning is always there when you need them. I am fairly independent student but Emma (my tutor) was great. She was very encouraging and made me feel really confident about my knowledge. Every single person I came across whilst studying has been not only helpful but also simply pleasant to be around. All the learning materials are great, especially presentations for each module. Prior to beginning my studies I was scared about being able to keep up with the all specifics of the course as English isn’t my native language but they have really made it all so easy.
What would you say to someone looking to start out on their AAT journey?
Don’t be scared and do it! The thought of University didn’t appeal to me but I was also scared about studying independently. All I can say, it is not hard at all! You get to choose where, when and how much you want to study. The best feeling is that you know you’re doing it all for yourself and trust me you won’t notice how quickly you will get through all the modules and pass your exams. If you’re having doubts which training provider should you choose, well that’s easy – Accountancy Learning is the one!
