    Hey everyone,

    I graduated last year in Accounting and Finance with a 2:1. Since then, I have been struggling to find work in the field. I plan on completing the ACCA as I already have exemptions for the foundation papers.

    I have recently read about the Janet and Richard Accounting course. It is a program where you pay £100 and they give you a login for their website where you can train on all aspects of SAGE 50. You can do this at your own pace.

    Once you're trained, you let them know about this and they send work to your home from their clients (accounts prep, VAT returns, management accounts etc).
    You then complete the work and send it off to them. They say that they even sign off one year on your ACCA experience (more if you do it for more than one year) and provide a reference if you find a new job.

    Has anybody heard of this course before or know anyone who has done it? I would like decide whether or not I should give it a go. I have already asked a few people and they say it sounds like a scam. I would like more opinions on this.

    Thanks.
