What our students say

★★★★★ “I loved the fact that I could do the course in my own time (even though it means I have to motivate myself to study..) It is great not having to be physically present at night classes. In terms of the resources, the forums were really useful as I could see previous responses to content I am currently working on. Everything was easy to access and complete. I would recommend The Career Academy to anyone!” – Joanne Gallagher

 

★★★★★ “I’m Leanne and I’ve worked off and on in accounting most of my adult life. In difference to the commonly held view that it is not a terribly exciting job, I have enjoyed doing the books for an advertising agency whilst living in Zimbabwe, worked in London CBD for the UKs largest multi-national company and I’m now running by own bookkeeping business called Totally Booked Bookkeepers. Becoming a Certified Bookkeeper and member has enabled me to gain personal development on a level I could only dream about.”
