Julie Allison – Your Bookkeeping Solution
Julie started with our Introduction to Bookkeeping course. Now, she has completed several of our ICB qualifications and has her own bookkeeping practice.
“In July 2017, I started to think about changing my career.
Since having my first son, Alfie in 2007, I have been self-employed as a Childminder – this gave me the opportunity to stay at home and care for him as well as having an income.
My second son, Harry was born in 2013 and with him due to start nursery in September 2017, I began to re-evaluate my next steps. “
Time for a career change
“I always enjoyed completing the accounts and tax returns for my childminding business and began to consider bookkeeping as my next move. After doing some research, I signed up for the Introduction to Bookkeeping course with Training Link and was immediately hooked.”
“The tutors are always quick to respond to questions”
“I quickly signed up for more and over the past two years have completed the Bookkeeping levels two, three and four, Payroll and Self-Assessment Tax Returns courses. I chose Training Link as I wanted the flexibility of being able to study at my own pace at home, alongside looking after my family and running my other business. The support from Training Link is fantastic – the training materials are easy to understand with lots of examples to work through. The tutors seem to have endless patience, are always quick to respond to questions and provide detailed feedback on assignments.”
“I now have my Practice Licence and have set up ‘Your Bookkeeping Solution'”
“The ICB package was ideal for me as I wanted to continue to be self-employed, and it covers lots of different aspects of Bookkeeping meaning I am equipped to offer a range of services to clients. I now have my Practice Licence and have set up “Your Bookkeeping Solution”, based in Laughton Common, South Yorkshire. I have been advertising and attending Networking groups since March 2019. I have completed tax returns for individuals and have my first regular clients on board. I won’t hesitate to come back to Training Link when I am ready for more studying, but for now, I am looking forward to growing my business over the coming months.”
