Luton, United Kingdom, May 29, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Luton based SkillsTrain, Europe’s leading IT distance learning college, has been named as the UK’s top achieving college in the International Association of Book-keepers Level 2 Certificate in Computerised Book-keeping, for the January 2008 exam results.
The company’s home learners’ book-keeping exam results cumulatively achieved the top slot for SkillsTrain, despite competition from students in full time study, making the accolade even more remarkable.
SkillsTrain has trained over 6 million home and work based students over the past 60 years and uses a blend of learning techniques to prepare students for a variety of disciplines, from technical IT courses to Web-design, office administration and book-keeping.
The IAB is the leading international membership body for professional book-keepers and provides financial and business qualifications for thousands of students and members worldwide.
SkillsTrain Principal Myra Smallman said “this is a really great honour for our students as it demonstrates how seriously they take their studies and how committed they are to our home study courses. It’s quite remarkable for SkillsTrain to have received this recognition when the college was up against so many full time courses and colleges”.
In June 2007 a SkillsTrain student, Catherine Cutts, a 45 year old mother of one, achieved the country’s top mark with an A+ grade with a 96% pass rate in the International Association of Book-keepers Level 3, Certificate in Computerised Payroll exam.
