AAT Student Stories: April Cullen | AAT Level 2 Review
April wanted to broaden her knowledge of Bookkeeping after developing a particular interest in it through her administration role. That's when she decided to take on an AAT Foundation Certificate online with us!
My current job role is administration assistant at a company that manufactures and installed ventilation, Professional Ventilation Services.
Since being there I have taken over the bookkeeping and other general accounts work using the Sage 50 accounting system. We have an outsourced accountant come every quarter and year-end to look through the accounts and submit VAT returns.
I was really intrigued at what the final stages of account preparation were, so I asked if I could do some extra management accounts to make her life easier.
As each quarter came and went, I took on more tasks and really enjoyed going more into depth with the company accounts and understanding how they work. It was the outsourced accountant that advised I should do the course as she had faith I would easily pass it.
At first, I had doubts if I could fit time in to study while having a full-time job and two children at home but I took a look into the AAT Level 2 course and came across ICS Learn.
ICS Learn offers distant learning at your own pace with affordable payment options and had really good reviews. It ticked all the boxes for me and I decided to take the plunge and study something I really enjoyed doing.
I was skeptical of distance learning in case it would be harder to grasp the learning material and not having some direct help to ask for advice when I didn’t understand something, but another great thing ICS Learn has is tutor support which I have found very helpful.
Any questions I have I can send a message over to my tutor and she gets back to me quickly, nothing is too much trouble and she goes through every detail.
I am now due to sit my last exam and with the looks of my previous exam results for this course I will get be getting a distinction.
I’m so happy I chose to take the plunge when I did. Upon finishing the course I will have a lot more job opportunities to work within accounting and I’m excited to move on to the next level.
I would highly recommend ICS Learn! Not for only the flexible distant learning, affordable monthly payments, great learning material, 24-7 support but for the way this training provider has gone above and beyond this last couple of months during the COVID-19 pandemic.
These past few months has been difficult for everybody and with colleges and schools closing and all exams got put on hold. ICS Learn has been very helpful and supportive of students through this time and it really shows they care about their students.
I will 100% be choosing ICS Learn again for my next course as I feel it's a provider I can rely on and trust.
