Hello,

I have been studying AAT Level 2 at my local college (July 2021 finish). The experience has generally been very poor for multiple reasons (lack of material, underqualified tutors.. etc) for this reason, I would like to use a provider for Level 3/4.

Are there any recommendations or experiences with any providers? Looking to really get my money's worth.

I have enquired with Kaplan, First Intuition, ICSLearn, Premier Training, Osborne Training, McArthur Morgan, Accountancy Learning and Eagle Education.

Any help would be really appreciated!

Joe

    Hi Joe

    It depends on how you want to learn. I did AAT with accountancy learning and it is a self learning provider, you will have support but they don't teach you the material. Tutor will be available to answer questions and mark your progress tests if thats the package you choose.

    Kaplan I think will let you choose how to learn. Independant, online or in person (Covid dependant). This is what they do at ACCA so I'm assuming it's an option for AAT as well. The others I can't comment on as I haven't used them.

    Apologies for the late reply!

    How did you find it overall at Accountancy Learning?
    Was their material enough to get you through each level comfortably?
    How was the tutor support?

    First Intuition, Premier Training and Accountancy Learning are the ones that stand out to me the most. First Intuition more so because they have a fairly local campus that provides AAT > ACA/ACCA/CIMA. Although I do plan on distance learning throughout my studies.

    Too many choices I think.

    The material I was given was suitable for me. They provide the osborne books as well as have some online material of their own.

    I didn't really use the tutor very much but they would generally mark papers quickly and give good feedback on them.
