They are so patient and helpful

As a PA my initial goal was to see if I would enjoy the financial side of a business.  I was able to undertake the Level 2 Bookkeeping to see if accountancy was for me, at a cost I could afford.  I really enjoyed the course and style of learning and wanted to take my studies further.  I do not currently work in a finance role so was recommended the Level 3 Bookkeeping, which will give me a qualification in its own right and hopefully enable me to find a new job.  I really like the fact that I can undertake further modules to complete the AAT Level 3 Accounting.

How did you find the learning materials, admin team and tutor support? (If applicable)

The office is great.  Signing up is really easy and you know that you are signing up for the right course for you!  I really like the on-line presentations.  They explain things in a different way to the material in the books.  This show and tell style of learning suits me and I like to take notes as I go along.  Doing the exercises and marking your own work gives me confidence that I have the knowledge for the exams.  If you get something wrong you can always go back over the presentations again to understand why.  If there are occasions when you just don’t get it – you can talk this over the phone with one of the tutors.  They are so patient and helpful in tying everything together.  I have found Simon and Prue to be very helpful.  It is a great feeling when it suddenly clicks!

What would you say to someone looking to start out on their AAT journey?

Accountancy Learning is a great way to start.   You can start small based on your current skills, time and budget and work your way up at a pace that suits your own skills and abilities.
