Testimonials & Reviews

‘Since starting my apprenticeship, I have learnt a lot and passed my first AAT exam with flying colours. The workshops are good and I have regular contact with my tutor. The support I have received from The Apprentice Academy has been great.’ – Kate Highfield

‘I have had a really good experience with the Apprentice Academy and I’m really excited to carry on growing with my qualification. Andy, the tutor has been amazing and I feel like I’ve learned so much with him over the past month. All the help and study materials are also really useful as we have access to different areas such as Kaplan and also the resources on OneFile.’ – Joseph Rose

‘The Apprentice Academy have been amazing throughout the whole process of my Apprenticeship from the start where Tony helped find the perfect apprenticeship for me through to Andy my Accountancy Coach who has an amazing skill of being able to break down concepts to help his students understand thoroughly. I would highly recommend the Apprentice Academy to anyone looking at taking the next step for their career.’ – James Wigley

‘I have received a lot support with my AAT, not only in the classroom but also at home. This is because my tutor is always willing to answer my questions whether that is face to face or via email. They always ask me if I am alright and if the lessons are going well. This has helped me to be reassured that if I had any problems, I could go to them for help. I have enjoyed studying AAT and I hope to proceed on to the next level.’ – Jovilda Messa,

‘The program The Apprentice Academy (TAA) runs for their apprentices is clear and well-structured and the level of support our apprentices receive throughout their apprenticeships is invaluable, the relationship we have with them is far more than an external partner and they really value what we are looking to achieve as a business and actively look to work with us to make this possible. Having worked with other Apprenticeship providers it’s very clear the support TAA provides their apprentices is second to none. It’s a perfect training partnership, leaving the apprentices happy they are being trained effectively and knowing they have the opportunity to fully put into practice everything they learn, and we have the confidence in knowing that all our AAT apprentices have been given in depth technical training by professional trainers. We honestly can’t rate TAA highly enough. We genuinely see TAA as a long-term part of our growth plans for the future of our business.’ – Amanda Wilcox, Training & Recruitment Manager, MAP
