‘’ After less than 2 months intensive studying I have managed to complete my Level II Manual and Computerised Bookkeeping course, with 2 merits on the manual papers and a distinction on my computerised section. At the same time, I also wanted to share my experiences of working with two fantastic tutors, Brian Harford and Fiona Bradley of Woodgrove Tutorials.With Woodgrove Tutorials, the tutorial service I have received has been fantastic.  From answering initial questions prior to enrolment, sending out course documentation and software swiftly and the ongoing support/feedback and advise throughout my learning experience, both Brian and Fiona have been absolutely superb and I would highly recommend their services. For ICB Course Packages, please give Woodgrove Tutorials a look.” Gareth Castle
