Amy worked in accounts but wanted to develop her skills and climb further in the company. She decided to study an AAT Level 2 Certificate in Accounting and here's how she got on.
I was working as an accounts support assistant for an international supermarket chain. After working for the company for a year, I decided to start my AAT qualification to open doors within the business.
I chose to study via ICS Learn as it fitted in well with working full time and my home life. As the course is based online, I could pick up where I left off at any time of day and at any location.
My preferred method of study was during lunch breaks and after work. This then meant that I could keep my weekends free.
My reservations with online learning was that I would not be able to keep myself motivated and push myself to take the first exam. Retaining the knowledge was also a worry for me as I was still training within my job role. Working and studying in accounts helped me understand the modules better and I could put this to practice during my working day.
The course was set out in a very structured way, as the modules are easily accessible and broken down into sections. This helped me plan my studies as they were already broken down.
The tutor support was great, as they would help me with any questions and queries I asked. I would receive a response in a timely manner so I was not left stuck on a question.
ICS provide an array of mock assessments and questions after each learning section. This helped me massively as I would be able to pin point any areas I need to revise.
Obtaining my AAT level 2 qualification through ICS learn has helped me within my current job role as I received a promotion and pay role after passing my first exam.
I passed all exams first time within a year of starting the course. I would highly recommend ICS learn as the material and support is exceptional and studying online takes away any pressure of having to be stuck to a strict timetable.
I have now commenced my AAT Level 3 and am waiting to sit my first exam.
