Basic accounts preparation, VAT returns, Audit work and bookkeeping tasks.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
I have learnt many new skills in accountancy and IT, especially in spreadsheets.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoyed the programme. I liked being out of work for one day a week to study and it allowed me to connect with people working in different environments.
4. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme was very well structured with one day a week being dedicated to study. There was a clear timetable from the start showing lessons and exams.
5. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I received a great deal of support from my employer, giving me extra time to study before an exam.
6. How much support do you receive from your training provider when working towards your qualifications?
The tutors were always available via email if/when required. We chad a bit of flexibility in lessons before exams so we could revise topics we felt less confident on.

It helped studying alongside working as it solidified what I was learning in college. I could put what I had learnt in the classroom into practice.

There was a good social committee at my workplace. We often had sporting events and weekends away. There were quizzes held regularly too.
