Testimonials

  • I would highly recommend distance learning as a great way to study. You need to be self-motivated but that’s great for me and it gives me the flexibility to fit studying around everything else. I can truly study at my own pace and spend more time on the areas that I find more challenging, rather than having to go at the speed of the tutor. Groves Training Services is a really committed provider which offers an excellent all round service. They have experienced, understa ...

    Jane Holland AIAAP, FIAB

    I found that studying through distance learning was excellent – there is a lot to learn, but the courses are well structured and make sense, the self test assessments are good for reinforcing what I had learned, and the workbooks are comprehensive and explain things well. The support I got from Di Garbera at Golding Computer Services was great - she is always happy to help and I never felt “stuck”. All in all a great start to my bookkeeping learning journey!

  • Karen Groves at Groves Training Services has been exceptionally supportive from my first enquiry, throughout both courses and during Examination Stage. She always made herself available whenever I had a query and answered my query in a very thorough & professional manner. The coursework was upto date and easy to follow. I have studied both IAB Level 1 and 2 Manual Bookkeeping with Groves Training Services and I highly recommend them as a Distance Learning Centre.

    I found studying by Distance Learning a lot better than I thought it would be. The text books provided with the course are excellent, and I was able to complete the course a lot quicker than I would have been able to following a college-based curriculum.

  • I decided to setup a small business providing book-keeping and payroll services shortly after my retirement.  My previous experience had given me a background in administration and financial management but no direct experience of industry.  Membership of the IAB proved invaluable in getting the project off the ground. Not only did they endorse my qualifications;  I have since achieved FIAB; but they also provided a range of essential services such as a Practice ...

    Qualifications matter a huge deal - most jobs require some kind of training and having an IAB qualification really opens doors.

    Susan Jones
  • Distance learning was the perfect solution for me as i was able to fit it in around my full time job and enabled me to work from home when it suited me. The distance learning option meant I could work to my own time schedule and I was under no pressure to meet a deadline as I booked the exam when I wanted and fealt ready. The course was easy to follow and well structured and my training provider,Groves Training Limited, offered excellent support and feedback throughout the ...

    Deborah Ross

    Having worked in my own business for many years and being the one responsible for looking after the bookkeeping side of things, when I sold my business some years ago I thought that this was a skill that I could put to good use so Total Bookkeeping services was born and started out at the age of 57 on a new career path. Having some bookkeeping skills I wanted to become qualified and provide my clients with the best possible quality of work so I searched for a training provid ...
