CASE STUDY – TRAINEE
Name: Augustine Kargbo
Education/Training: BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance
Having completed my degree with such a good result I wanted to continue my education and improve my skills – and carry on with the ACCA studies. Unfortunately, working part time as a Security Officer (as I have for a while) I could not afford to pay the ACCA tuition fees.
I found information about the Moracle Foundation online and decided to check what they have to offer.
What did you expect?
I needed advice on how to improve my situation and realise my goals. My hope is to become a Chartered Certified Accountant and to gain experience in the field; I believe this is now within reach – with the help of Moracle Foundation’s experienced staff.
How did Moracle Foundation help you?
Prior to me joining MF, I only had a Technician Diploma in Accounting (TDA). Thanks to their programme of in-house training and mentoring from their knowledgeable team, I was able to pass my exams for the BA (Hons) in Accounting and Finance at the London South Bank University.
For me this was a fantastic result, and the story does not end there – I am now at the professional stage of the ACCA programme. MF gave me an opportunity to grow my knowledge and practical skills simultaneously. It improved my skills and confidence as an Accountant-to-be. I can talk ‘accounts’, work with numbers, give customer service and work with accounting packages, such as QuickBooks, to mention just one.
What, in your opinion, is the most valuable part of the process?
What I find most helpful is developing my abilities to work as a member of a team, improving my employability skills and networking with friends and industry professionals. Moracle Foundation’s approach motivates me to continue with my accounting career.
I will be proud to recommend Moracle Foundation to others because it is a programme that will help the community as a whole and individuals who want to continue their career in Accounting.
