We are proud to have been nominated for AAT's "BEST NEW TRAINING PROVIDER" & "BEST USE OF E-LEARNING" awards in 2016.
Here's what our students have to say about us:
I have just completed my AAT Level 2 Qualification in Bookkeeping with The Learning Academy and plan to continue studying with them, for my Level 3 and Level 4. To start with I was a little unsure about taking an online course rather than classroom based learning. But I have found the online lectures to be a lot more beneficial, the class sizes are smaller meaning you get more interaction with the lecturer and are able to ask questions at any point if needed without feeling apprehensive about slowing everyone down. Bharat Shah has been an amazing tutor all the way through, extending sessions, always on hand to answer questions (via email - even when not in lecture time), continual patience when something just hasn’t quiet sunk in. Bharat finds different ways of looking at things until you understand rather than explaining it the same way again and again which was definitely helpful to me. I can guarantee this kind of support and commitment that Bharat has shown as a tutor is not and never will be available from a college tutor. 5 stars completely! All the books and print outs you need are given to you, no need to mess around sourcing them yourself, its included in the price! The lecturing schedule is very well planned, takes bank holidays into consideration and even allows session for revision! And… you don’t have to worry if for some reason you can’t attend a session, you won’t miss out, Bharat records all sessions so you can watch it if you miss out, or even watch it back for revision purposes. The course has helped me understand exactly what the system at work is doing for me, and more, I now feel confident and able to help out with preparing journals, accruing costs and undertaking Accounts Receivable work, rather than just sticking to my Accounts Payable work.
I recently completed my AAT Level 2 Qualification in Bookkeeping with Learning Academy and plan to continue studying for my Level 3 and 4 with them. I was slightly apprehensive at first taking a course that was conducted online rather than in a college classroom however I do not regret this decision at all. I felt that by studying online in the evenings rather than having to leave work early in the day, I could stay on top of both my work commitments and also my studying commitments. All the resources that you need are provided and there are even activities designed by Learning Academy to test your knowledge even further than just the workbooks and online tests - which shows the lecturers really care about their students and their progress on the course. The lessons are very well structured and I felt that the pace of the course was perfect as it allowed slight progression over time rather than ‘throwing you in at the deep end’ . This was largely thanks to my lecturer Bharat Shah who was very approachable throughout and took time to explain things further if needed. I believe that this type of support would not have been offered in a college classroom scenario, as Bharat was happy to extend lessons a little longer if myself or any of the other students had any issues regarding the content of the course. The AAT learning process compliments my current job perfectly and I am able to apply this knowledge in a practical environment. I now look forward to future studying with Learning Academy and developing my skills even further!

I'm currently doing AAT level 4 with Learning Academy Private but I have studied AAT L2 and L3 with the same tutor at College a couple of years ago. L4 Subjects are covered in depth, both the theory part and the practical activities; also you are not left alone when it comes to the revision. There is plenty of time for revision, at least 2 or 3 teaching sessions are scheduled for it, and if you need some extra, the tutor will always find time for you to help! The tutor is very professional and competent, there're varieties of activities to prepare you for your exams, and he's totally devoted to teaching and will always give some extra support if you need it. Choosing to study your AAT qualification online via LIVE distance learning with Learning Academy gives you the opportunity to study at home and you don't miss the class environment and the opportunity to ask questions! It's like being in a class but without leaving your home and need to travel. I totally recommend Learning Academy to anyone who wants to start their Accounting career.

I started my training as AAT level 2 at a college, placing me in the position to make a comparison between the two experiences. Being a full time employed person I have greatly benefited from the opportunity of following the lessons online as this has cut a significant amount of time in travelling to and from college. The level of teaching and the support offered are without doubt superior to the one received at college. During the lessons, the web platform used is intuitive and allows for the group of students to engage, both, with the teacher and with each other. I particularly enjoy how the teacher shares the screen with all of us when explaining different topics in a way that I can really understand the process and make it mine. Between the lessons the teacher is always available to be contacted via e-mail in case there is a need for further clarification on a particular exercise. The teacher has supported me in keeping up with the exam schedule and to achieve all my set goals within the time set at the beginning of the program. At college, all this just wasn't available. I honestly would recommend Learning Academy Private Limited to anyone who wishes to study accountancy and complete the course in time and with peace of mind.
Cristina Antonangeli (Windsor, Berkshire - UK)
I did not need to worry. Price includes cost of all books and exams. All books and notes are provided before we start any subject. The tutor support is really great. When I have a problem I email my tutor and got a response the very next day. Sessions suite my individual learning needs. They are full of resources and really informative. Tutors are very professional.
I really enjoy studying with Learning Academy and I am grateful for all the help and support from Mr. Bharat Shah, director of Learning Academy, and other tutors through my studies.
I will be highly recommending Learning Academy to anyone.
I initially started at Langley College on an AAT Level 1 starter course, this was a challenge on its on for me to commit my time and concentration as I hadn't studied since my time at school almost 30 years ago. This gave me the insight into what the future in accounting could hold for me, with this in mind I decided that I would give this 100% and it has changed not only my life but that of my wife and children. Currently I am in the process of becoming a partner and shareholder in the accounts practice where I have been employed for the last two and a half years.The journey to Level 3 completion would not have been possible without the help and encouragement received from Bharat and Jigish during my time at East Berkshire College. The journey to Level 4 completion would have been a difficult one if the Learning Academy hadn't brought the course to me, I find the online lectures easy to follow and the fact I can work from the comfort of my own home makes this course so accessible. I never thought that starting my AAT experience in my mid forties that after three I would be working in a full time accountancy position, the future for myself and my family looks so much brighter than it did three years ago.
I would to thank you for all your ongoing support along the way.
Excellent online study experience
This course is taught at a very comfortable pace by experienced tutors. The format is easy to use and the tutors are always accessible. Being able to attend sessions from home rather than having to travel to a college is very helpful for a busy person working full time. The course fees are reasonable and competitive compared to other providers. I am entirely satisfied with the service received and would highly recommend this provider and the AAT course as it has helped me find a good job in a short time.

I was offered the chance to become a senior accountant at my family's firm. So I went for a consultation with Bharat Shah, who was then a tutor at a local college. He provided me with great advice and ever since he has successfully guided me through AAT levels 2 and 3. I followed him to Learning Academy Private Ltd as I found his style of teaching excellent. I really enjoy online learning as it is so convenient whilst working full time as an accountant. The help provided is superb and if I require any support, it is always available quickly and efficiently. Level 4 has been has been a very good learning experience. I highly recommend Learning Academy Private.
AAT Level 4 Accounting
I have known Bharat since I was a student at college (attending level 1, 2 and 3). Since he set up his own business and we could have online sessions, I "followed" him because he is a very good teacher and I really like his methodology. Hope you choose him too. Good luck!
Monika Raicea (Colnbrook-Slough, Berkshire, UK)
I am currently studying AAT Level 4 with Learning Academy. The standard of teaching is excellent, the lessons are clear and easy to follow, notes and books always arrive on time. Bharat and the other tutors make the lessons entertaining and interesting, a recorded session is forwarded in case the session is missed or if the students need to watch it again. Taking the lessons online is so much easier as it has cut out the travelling to college. The tutors always respond promptly to questions and are happy to offer extra one to one sessions, this is useful during revision times.

I decided to study AAT after years looking after my kids. I was a bit anxious about going back to studies after such a long break. It was the best decision I have ever taken. Lessons were fun, dynamic and very productive. Bharat has a good knowledge of accounting, and he is a great communicator, giving you simple examples that help you understand complex accounting terms. His lectures were well prepared in advance, with plenty of practice exercises to understand each topic.
I always felt very prepared towards my tests, which I passed at first attempt. Since then, I got a job in the finance department of an energy plant, doing a job I truly enjoy.
I would highly recommend Bharat and AAT.
I decided to change my career when I was 33 and moved from Sales to Accountancy. I chose AAT qualification as a start and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made! I studied this course at Langley College where my lecturer was Bharat Shah. Lectures were productive and informative with plenty of exercises which helped me always be prepared to my exams; and all of them I passed confidently. This was really a great time! Thank you Bharat!
The most important is that the skills and knowledge that I acquired during my studying time helped me in my career in Accountancy. Being a student I started working as an Account Assistant for a logistic company and after a couple of years I was promoted to be a Finance Manager.
Based on my own experience I would highly recommend AAT qualification for those who are passionate to work in the Accountancy field.

When I decided to have a change of career from Engineering to Accountancy, I enrolled at a college to study AAT level 2. This is where I met Bharat Shah. He helped me complete level 2 and level 3 with not even one failed exam so there was no doubt I would follow him to Learning Academy Private Limited. I began AAT having such little knowledge of Accountancy all the way to being able to produce Financial Statements from start to finish! This is thanks to Bharat's great teaching skills. I have also found his fellow tutors at Learning Academy have the same enthusiasm for their students to succeed. Also the online learning platform is great as the tutors respond to your questions as if you were in class even though you are in the comfort of your own home. If you want to pass the exams and get a deep understanding of accountancy, I highly recommend studying at Learning Academy.
