Yash (Accounting Tutor)
It was such a challenging journey with The Career Academy. The program that I took was not really as easy as I imagined but they made sure that the students will really understand the course. My favorite tutor was Yash Mittal, his feedback were encouraging and gave me so much inspiration and more determination to finish my course.
Mitali (Accounting Tutor)
It was really great to work with Career Academy. The tutors helped me finish the course in a reasonably short time. I am proud of my achievement and am probably continuing my studies at a career academy. Thank you all my tutors:Tracy, Eden, Mitali, Bhavic
Jessica (Administration Tutor)
I made a decision to diversify my skillset and jumped on the Career Academy medical reception course. From the very beginning I knew I had the support network I needed to succeed in this course. The tutors are available for any questions and give helpful feedback. I have especially appreciated the help of Jessica Duiker who has encouraged me to continue to do the best I can with each assessment. Studying at home during COVID19 has been a great use of my downtime. I'll come out of this with a fresh new qualification and ready to get back into the workforce.
