Beth Lamarra

AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting

Looking to get ahead in her career with a programme that would help her grow and develop, Beth decided to study an AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting with us before moving on to an Advanced qualification. 

I'm currently working as an accounts clerk on a new Netflix TV series. I've completed the Foundation level accounting qualification and I have only one exam left to achieve my Advanced level accounting qualification.

While it has been frustrating that exam centres have had to shut down and I haven’t been able to complete my qualifications in the time frame I hoped, the great thing about ICS Learn is that I can always fit the course around whatever else I have going on.

I chose to study this course in accounting because I wanted to feel confident in my accounting skills and to show future employers that I was committed and driven.

While the content was not directly suited to the style of accounting used in the Film and TV industry, I feel that I have a much greater understanding of my job and would be interested in doing further qualifications.

I didn't really know what to expect from online learning, but I appreciated the fact that there were self-correcting exercises and examples to reinforce the content as I went along. It was great to know that there was a tutor there to help me if needed. My online tutor was reassuring and encouraging in the lead-up to my first exam, but after that, I felt that I could tackle the content and exams on my own at my own pace.

I think my qualification is one of the reasons I was taken seriously and have been able to secure a role with Netflix.

ICS Learn was super easy to set up and just get started and provided the flexibility I needed to work and learn at the same time. I am looking forward to completing my advanced qualification and would recommend ICS Learn to anyone looking to learn some valuable skills in a stress-free environment.
