Simon Greenoil
An excellent learning institution for AAT courses for company owners and administrators. I’ve also heard great things about their HR courses from friends. Their AAT course has been excellent so far, and their venue in London is beautiful with a creative touch, warm coffee and even jelly beans. 5 Stars.
