Apprentice or Employer?
What impressed me most about my level 2 studies was the way that most things I learned during the qualification linked to the work I was doing in the office. This really helped me to understand the role better, as I knew about everything that was happening behind the scenes. All my tutors have been exceptional teachers, and the fact that I have passed all my exams first time only proves this!
I’d recommend the AAT training through apprenticeship route to any young budding Accountant. With the support of my employer I was able to earn and learn at the same time rather than coming out of University with debt and no guarantee of a job at the end of it. The support of Babington has enabled me not only to complete my AAT qualifications but also to compete at prestigious events such as WorldSkillsUK.
During my AAT studies the Babington staff were really helpful. They were flexible with exam dates, and the tutors were really helpful in spending extra time with me if I didn’t understand things. It was particularly helpful that they had previously worked in business, so they gave me practical examples of when certain skills were used. Their genuine enthusiasm for the subject helped me realise that this is not just a job – it’s a career.
