E-Learning demo (video to show how our Moodle platform and resources work)

If you are considering enrolling onto a course, one of many questions you may well ask yourself “What learning materials will I receive, will I like them?”

When deciding on which training provider you choose, it’s definitely something to bear in min.

To give you an idea of what our materials look like and how they work, please click on the image below to see a quick demo.

If you would like to try out the materials for yourself, you can request access to our FREE Mini-Bookkeeping Taster course here

How long will my course take?

How long your course will take really hinges on how many hours each week (on average) you are able to devote to your studies

For Example: if you enrol on the Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping, studying for 6 hours a week (on average) should see you completing this qualification within approximately 4½ months. If you can study for 8 hours a week, it’s likely to take around 3 months and if you’re able to squeeze in 15 hours per week, you should be done and dusted within a couple of months.

Resources you will need

  • Computer (or laptop or mobile device)

    N.B. If you are completing the AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting qualification, you will need to ensure that you have access to a Microsoft Windows PC/laptop as you will need this for the ‘Using Accounting Software’ unit (which generally involves using Sage 50 Professional software). Sage 50 is not compatible with Apple products.

    Some training providers may offer SageONE instead, which is a cloud based version of Sage, and this is compatible with Apple. However, SageONE is not as widely used in the workplace as Sage50, so this is something to take into account.

  • Access to the internet – essential in order to access our online learning site. You will also need to have a Flash Player installed. If using an Apple device, you may need to download the Puffin browser to view our interactive presentations.
  • Access to a printer – whilst this is not absolutely essential, many students like to print out activities, progress tests and practice assessments in order to hand write their answers.
  • A Calculator!
