Exam Prep Sessions - To give students the best chance of passing assessments, we have developed a series of regular assessment preparation sessions. Before the session students complete a pre-assigned mock paper, the tutor will run through your paper thereafter and correct any incorrect answers, informing you of what the AAT expect you to write and why. This helps you think in a way that will enable you to approach each question correctly, increasing the likelihood of you passing.
Live Online Classes - Your tutor will take you through a specific topic or module in an online classroom session.

“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 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.
