Sarah’s story:-

‘’I started studying for my IAB qualifications with no experience whatsoever , I put time and effort in and managed to complete all 3 levels in 6 months.

Thanks to my tutor Brian who was always on hand to help answering any queries I had , he got back to me quickly , with easy to understand answers.

Due to my MIAB studies I managed to get a job in a local accountancy practice because of what I have learned through studying it made my job so much easier, it gave me fantastic technical knowledge .I have the freedom to also work freelance if I wish to. Gaining these qualification has given me the confidence to further my career , I’m currently in the process of starting my ACCA qualification.This time last year I never imagined I would have the job I have now .’’

Thank you Brian for all your help and thank you very much for nominating me and being a fantastic tutor.

Kind regards Sarah (Smith)
