Local woman gets dream job in fashion industry thanks to learning support from online college

Home / Blog / Local woman gets dream job in fashion industry thanks to learning support from online college

A Sittingbourne woman has achieved her dream job of working on the accounts of a fashion and design company after successfully completing courses at a specialist UK-wide e-learning college focusing exclusively on bookkeeping and accounting.

Veronica Vladiuc, 34, joined 2,000 other students at long-established online college, Ideal Schools, studying to become a member of the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) and ended up winning Ideal Schools’ AAT Student of the Year Award.

Veronica had secured a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance from her native Moldova before, in 2009 she moved to the UK with her husband and two young children. She found out quickly, however, that with a young family, a full time job and a two hour commute to work that it was impossible to take on a regular college course, so started to examine her online learning options.

She said: “I did a lot of research before signing up with Ideal Schools and I am really pleased to say that I made the right choice as they offer great value for money and excellent tutorial support. It was like having 24/7 tutor support to help me understand the intricacies of the syllabus. They were so helpful when my grasp of the language failed me.”

Veronica sat the AAT Level 2 & 3 exams and excelled in the study, winning her award against stiff competition. Her diligence and determination paid off when she achieved her ideal job as an accounts co-ordinator at a prestigious fashion and design company in late 2014; but she’s not stopping there.

She said: “I am planning on taking my accountancy studies further, and I am aiming to achieve Chartered Accountant status and go into professional practice for myself. Winning the Ideal Schools AAT Student of the Year award is an amazing feeling; it’s just the cherry on the cake for what I’ve achieved.

“I don’t think I could have such ambitions, or have achieved so much, without the support Ideal Schools gave me.”
