AAT Student Stories: Jo | AAT Level 2 Certificate Review

Learn how Jo developed her confidence and secured a promotion at work, after studying an AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate online, fitting it around her young family.

I had found that I was being asked to handle more and more financial responsibility in my role. Although I had a fair amount of experience, I wasn’t totally confident in the area.

"I decided to carry out a Foundation Certificate in Accounting with ICS Learn to support my current role."


Being a working mum, I was quite anxious about how I would complete all the studying and
exams around my work and home commitments.

"The best thing online learning is that you can fit it around your life. I could study for a few hours in the evening once my daughter was in bed and catch the recorded live lessons that I may have missed. Having these recorded is a huge help when studying yourself at home."


The tutors are really helpful and encouraging and there to answer any questions you may have.

There is also a huge community of fellow students, which can make you feel less alone when you
might be struggling with a certain topic.

"If you fall behind on your studies, ICS Learn offers you an option to extend, even if it’s just for an extra month. I have found this very reassuring when life has got in the way of my studies, as it tends to do."


After finishing the foundation certificate, I went on to complete the Advanced Diploma, which I am
coming to the end of now.

"The things that I have learnt through these two courses have been so hugely beneficial to my career. It has made my job a lot easier and I have also got a big promotion! "


If you are thinking of signing up to one of these courses, I would highly recommend it. It is not only
for the rewards in your career but the personal sense of achievement you feel when you master
each topic.
