A great career, from the comfort of your own home.
As Christmas fast approaches it won’t not be long before those ‘new year’ plans start to dominate our thoughts. And with this year’s events, many will consider what a career in the ‘new world’ will look like.
For an increasing amount of people, that career will take place at home.
Luckily, with the study method options and courses we offer, there are many options that suit this preference.
Here we detail some of the home based career options that are available.
We offer the perfect qualifications to get your foot into the door of the accountancy world. This largely comes in the form of our AAT qualifications.
AAT is one of the most popular accounting qualifications out there. You don’t need any previous qualifications or accountancy experience to begin studying, and it provides all the foundational accountancy principles to get you started.
Anyone, from school leavers to career changers, can start the qualification.
We have many distant learning study options for those wanting to qualify from home - start to finish.
Live Online is our study method that offers the structure of a traditional classroom but with the flexibility of studying from home. You can join timetabled live lectures online, and talk to tutors during the class for live feedback.
And all our lectures are recorded, so if you miss one you can catch up, or re-watch classes for extra revision.
Ideal for those wanting to replicate the classroom experience at home.
Similar to Live Online but offering a more responsive and bespoke approach, we have OnDemand.
It’s an award-winning, flexible, online study option that uses a variety of learning formats such as bite-sized tutor-led lectures, and activities, to link topics together. It’s all designed to help you stay motivated.
