AAT student wins Distance Learner of the Year
We are delighted to announce that Mr Ashraf Ali has won AAT’s 2015 Distance Learner of the Year!
Mr Ali is 85 years of age and an inspiration to students with a ‘never give up’ attitude to his studies. He previously worked in a bookkeeping role but has never had a qualification to show for it – now, years later, he has studied for and earned his AAT. What Mr Ali has achieved in his studies demonstrates that the AAT provide an excellent opportunity for everyone to flourish and succeed – no matter their age.
Mr Ali has overcome difficulties in embracing the modern technology and communication methods he never encountered in his early years – an amazing achievement considering he has studied via Distance Learning. He never shied away from modern technology and fully embraced the new CBT and CBP assessment methods. His proudest AAT paper to date was SDST (Spreadsheet Software) as this was actually his first time using Excel.
Mr Ali called us recently to confirm he has received his Level 4 Certificate, after starting studying with us almost 10 years ago. He has overcome his difficulties through extraordinary determination and we are so proud to say that Mr Ali was a BPP student, a true deserver of AAT’s Distance Learner of the Year Award.
Congratulations Mr Ali!
