Lee Matthews

AAT Level 2 & 3

Lee decided it was time to make a career switch from his job in real estate, so he decided to enrol on an AAT Level 2 followed by an AAT Level 3 qualification with us to kickstart his new dream. 

When I was younger, I almost took up accountancy but at the time decided to become an estate agent instead. Now halfway through my career life, I have decided to make the change to accountancy. I have always enjoyed numbers and problem-solving so knew that this was the right change to make at this time.

With a family to support and a mortgage to pay it was not an option to go back to school and study full time or even part-time.

I explored the different options and found that I could study online in my own time and at my own pace. I spent a lot of time looking at different companies online, talking with friends who are in the business to ascertain the best path for me.

"ICS Learn seemed a good fit – the online lessons could be attended live or I could watch a pre-recorded lesson. The fees were competitive and affordable, and the reviews seemed generally positive."

I have completed the Level 2 Foundation in Accountancy with ICS Learn and am currently studying Level 3 with ICS Learn as well.

It suits my lifestyle and enables me to have a good work, life, and study balance. I have found the studying difficult at times due to trying to get my head around and understanding what it is that I am trying to learn, however, my tutor has always been on hand to help answer any questions and to explain in detail to help me understand.

Once I have started working in accountancy and completed my Level 3, I will be looking to study the AAT Level 4 in accountancy to further my progression in the future.

"I have no hesitation in recommending ICS Learn as my experience with them so far has been very good as they have provided me with the tools I need to get the qualifications and the new start in life that I am looking for."
