Ideal Schools have helped me to gain a whole new set of bookkeeping qualifications which has given me a new lease of life! The tutors have been with me every step of the way, even giving up time in the evenings when I've been at work all day, to help me with course work.
I couldn't recommend them enough if you are thinking on embarking on a new skill set. They will be there for you when you need them.

Ideal schools have great helpful very friendly tutors and staff. Assignments were marked within 2 days and sometimes sooner. If for whatever reason I needed help, emails were answered within hours. I never phoned them as advice was always clear and I never felt judged no matter what. I would highly recommend and I am looking forward to carrying on my studies to the next level.

I undertook this course as a career change (with much trepidation I might add!), however I can't praise Ideal Schools highly enough. As my first distance course, their assistance and support is first class, both with the tutoring (shout out to Scott :), and with general advice from the guys in 'the office'!, Brian and Sheila in particular. Got the great grades I wanted with their help, with no finance background. Now undertaking Level 3 diplomas with Ideal Schools.

Ideal Schools were not only very informative in helping me decide what course to take but also very friendly. I have completed 2 courses with great support from them. The tutors respond to any questions I ask very quickly and without their support would not have completed my two course in record time. I have just signed up to another two courses and I’m sure I will sail through these with their help and support.

So glad I choose Ideal Schools. I used them for ICB SAT and FRS105 exams and ended up with great results. The manuals are easy to follow, but what makes the difference is the feedback and exam tips that come back with the tutor marked assignments. Any questions I asked were answered quickly. The facebook groups are also very helpful as well.
Thanks to every one at Ideal Schools

Having recently completed 3 courses with Ideal Schools, I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in studying Bookkeeping courses. Everyone at Ideal Schools is friendly and encouraging and the materials and tutor support are amazing.

A huge thank you to Ideal Schools for leading me through AAT Accounting Levels 2 & 3. I needed something flexible to work around family life and work and Ideal Schools not only offered that complete flexibility so that I could complete the courses at my own pace, but also offered help at the right times and was outstanding value for money. I would thoroughly recommend Ideal Schools to anyone considering distance learning.

Unhelpful, old fashioned traditional examples .
No help with software
Review by DougM Derrow3 months ago
I undertook the combined AAT Level 2 & 3 course. The study materials were excellent with a combination of Ideal School, Kaplan and BPP materials all of equal excellent quality. Assignments were set to consolidate learning and were always thoroughly and quickly marked. I kept failing the AAT mock exam on one particular unit so I was provided additional question papers to practice with and eventually it clicked. Scot and Brian have answered all of my queries quickly and have shown dedication to helping me succeed in my studies. One major positive is that it is one of the lowest priced providers. You pay exam fees and AAT membership on top of the course fees yourself but the overall cost is still a lot less than many other distance learning providers with no loss of quality. I scored highly in all of my exams so a provider costing more probably couldn't have improved on that. I was able to obtain a job in finance because of this course and I am now waiting on news of employer funding for AAT level 4. It is a shame Ideal Schools don't offer this but completing levels 2 & 3 provides a valuable qualification in itself.

Coming from the perspective of a more mature student I can thoroughly recommend Ideal Schools. The team are very supportive and I felt that no question was too trivial - you are well supported throughout the whole process and end up going into your exams with confidence.

I have always been able to get through to tutor who has gone through any problems I have had until I have thoroughly understood. The tutors and admin staff are always friendly and willing to help. As a result I have achieved very good results ( much better than I would have thought at the beginning) .

My experience with Ideal Schools so far has been brilliant! The course materials are presented well and are easy to follow, and assignment feedback from the tutors is always really prompt meaning you’re not left hanging on for days before you find out your marks.
The Facebook group is really helpful too, with the Tutors providing lots of advice and guidance with a range of questions.
I’ve just completed my ICB Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping and have started my Level 3, and I couldn’t think of a better provider to be learning with!

Just finished a really informative two hour evening webinar with Eszter Petrinovics in support of the Self Assessment module that I will be starting when I finish Level 3 Bookkeeping (only two exams to go). Wow, what a brilliant way to bring the subject to life and whilst there is a lot to learn, I know it will be manageable due to the structured course content, assignments and tutor support.
The whole team are fantastic - really approachable and the service is excellent from start to finish. Thanks to everyone - excited to know my self employed practice licence is within reach!!

I am studying with Ideal Schools and I have recently started my own bookkeeping practice.
My practice is growing slowly and I have acquired a few customers.
Last week I found myself needing some guidance and I spoke with Brian who put me in touch with a wonderful ambassador.
She was fantastic, gave me valuable advice and much needed encouragement. Thanks Ideal Schools!

Happy to have passed my payroll exam at first attempt with Ideal Schools.
Have found all of the staff and tutors really helpful on my journey so far. I am now studying bookkeeping with them and have again found them to be really great.

ICB set the bar high for all their certifications with level 3 having an 84% pass threshold. When you join Ideal Schools their mission is not only to help you pass but to ensure you have built the skills and acumen to operate competently as a professional. There is a big difference between studying to pass an exam and being provided with a ladder to build your career. I have achieved level 2 and 3 through working closely with Ideal Schools and through the whole journey the content has been consistent and broken down into bite size chunks. They break complex subjects down and present them clearly and comprehensively.
Through the journey there have been many times when I just wanted to speak to someone about a specific area. When you call the office despite how busy they may be, who ever answers always manages to slow down and listen to my problem. Quite often this is a 1-5 minute call where I put the phone down with the answers I needed and am able to move on.
I have had different tutors for different models/chapters and everyone has responded rapidly marking assignments and papers with precision and detailed feedback.
Behind the scenes Ideal Schools have a great and hard working team, From calling Sheila on the desk in a panic, to wrestling with Goodwill with Tutor Scot to discussing client risk with Eszter and battling with BIK's with Nicky. The whole team goes the extra mile. There are too many quality individuals to mention in one review but at the helm is Brian. Even though he is rushed off his feet at times he is never too busy to thrash it out on the phone or get back to you on email. The support that Brian has provided is second to none.
Thank you all at Ideal Schools

Having just completed and passed another course with Ideal Schools, I cannot recommend them enough, they have been a major part in me being able to set up my practice which has been going for over three years, their support especially from the tutors is second to none and their whole support system is amazing!
