“Being an army wife means I move around a lot and I have not worked since my daughter was born over a year ago so studying is helping me get back into work and do something for myself again. I was lucky enough to speak to my AFF representative at a coffee morning and she put me in touch with the ACCA.

The ACCA qualifications allow me to study at a time to suit me, I am able to do the course in the evening and I don't have to travel or find child care in order to study. I have found the course both enjoyable and challenging but most importantly it is enables me to learn without having large fees to pay and it is flexible.”
