“Wow what can I say! Never been one for computers so was very dubious about doing a course online, but with working full time and being a mum I couldn't dedicate the time to go to a college so this was the only option for me to succeed with my career path. What a great decision I made with the help of the advisers! I opted to take AAT Level 2 and I am so glad I did. Any queries I've had relating to the course the advisers answered straight away. The course material was easy to learn. So I would like to thank e-Careers in making my dreams possible and I can't wait to book onto AAT Level 3”.


"After considering a career change for a while but needing to learn while still working my current job I decided to look for distance learning companies. After much consideration I chose e-Careers to undertake AAT Level 2 Foundation Certificate in Accounting as they offered a bundle for AAT Levels 2 and 3, as well as a number of other benefits which I found as the best deal. The course was quick and easy to get enrolled on, I only had one query, which was replied to quickly. I would recommend e-Careers to anyone looking to find a new career or update existing skills”.

Questions and answers


Course rating


What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
