Reza — part-time AAT Accounting

I’ve got the qual­i­fi­ca­tions I need to work as a professional. 

Reza — AAT Account­ing Lev­el 3 and 4

Reza used AAT Account­ing cours­es at Not­ting­ham Col­lege to get qual­i­fied, and now he runs an accoun­tan­cy busi­ness! DNS Accoun­tants Not­ting­ham, his new fran­chise, is based just off Gre­go­ry Boule­vard in Nottingham. 

He com­plet­ed Lev­el 3 and is now com­ing to the end of Lev­el 4. Now he has AAT account­ing qual­i­fi­ca­tions, Reza can offer a range of tax and man­age­ment account­ing ser­vices. These include book­keep­ing, tax ser­vices, pay­roll, and more. 

Reza's experience of an accounting course at Nottingham College

Reza said: My Account­ing tutor Irfan always sup­port­ed me and guid­ed me. He also helped me and the oth­er stu­dents to find the best next steps, for exam­ple to move from Lev­el 3 to Lev­el 4 and then get a licence. 

He was always help­ful and we chat­ted about the future and jobs. 

Anoth­er good thing about Not­ting­ham Col­lege is that they con­sid­ered my inter­na­tion­al qual­i­fi­ca­tions and my skills and expe­ri­ence to help me progress.

So, in quite a short time I’ve got the qual­i­fi­ca­tions I need to work as a professional. 

I have also devel­oped my com­mu­ni­ca­tion and tech­ni­cal skills and start­ed my own business.”

He found it useful to work with his coursemates

Reza said: I have made friends on my cours­es. We meet for some study ses­sions out­side col­lege, like in the library, for revis­ing and doing some practice. 

Dur­ing lock­down, we also had a good online group chat. We used it to share any study prob­lems and ask ques­tions. It was very helpful.” 

Reza's advice to adults who are thinking of returning to study

Reza said: I think if an adult is wor­ried about going to Col­lege, I would tell them that at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, I had no issues with my age. Every­one is giv­en the same oppor­tu­ni­ties, young or old!

Some cours­es, like my account­ing cours­es, are designed for adults. Many on my course are 35 years old or older.”
