The following students were among the winners & nominees from recent ICB Student of the Year awards. Here are a few words from each of them, giving an insight of how they viewed their studies with Ideal Schools.
Moolchand Dubey - Winner, Student of the Year:
t the age of 58, I dared to take ICB examinations to become a self-employed bookkeeper. Initially, I was not confident whether I would be able to make it. But, all credit to Ideal Schools, I not only completed the course within a short period of time (ICB Career Path - 5 months) but did so well that I was awarded Student of the Year Award 2011 by ICB.
Ideal Schools course material thoroughly prepared me for the ICB examinations. Completing the assignments made me confident. Tutor support was excellent. I had every possible support and help from them. I do not think any other course provider can match Ideal Schools. They are truly IDEAL."
Leisa Turnbull – Nominee, Student of the Year:
"Thank you all at Ideal Schools for your support through what has been a very big time of change for me. I took on mammoth task of retraining and getting qualified in a fairly short period and only with your excellent material, on hand support and encouragement have I managed to succeed. Since going self employed in July this year I have billed in excess of 15% extra month on month and the trend seems to be continuing into the new year with nearly all my available hours taken, I may even consider expanding and subcontracting work at the tail end of next year. My quality of life has improved dramatically, everyone in my family has benefited. It was a very daunting prospect to home study while working a 40 hour week with 2 children at home and an hour each way commute however with it being so easy to contact the tutors when I needed them, it never felt like I was doing this on my own. I studied in 3 main areas bookkeeping, tax and payroll so I was lucky enough to work closely with Brian, Jo, Scot and Al I would like to thank you all again for helping me achieve a new direction for me and my career."

Shirley Atterbury – Winner, Student of the year:
'In Ideal Schools I have found value for money. Their friendly and total support has enabled me to gain the most out of my course and helped me obtain excellent results in my exams. To me Ideal Schools has it all.'
Anna Reid – Nominee, Student of the Year:
"I originally chose to study with Ideal Schools because they are/were the only training provider to provide such an extensive range of courses which cover all the ICB exams.
The ICB career path is excellent value for money and all the coursework is clear and easy to work with. The tutor support is fantastic with tutors always on the end of the phone or email to answer any questions or concerns.
I am so glad I chose Ideal Schools and have recently secured a fantastic job thanks to my new qualifications.”
