CAREERS AT FI AAT Distance Learning

At the moment we have no vacancies in our distance learning team.


Nick Craggs has curated a team of tutors who are in one word: wonderful. The team are knowledgeable, and spend as much time as needed to explain concepts thoroughly. They understand the exam requirements and give you all the tools and advice to ensure you are well prepared to pass exams.

Josephine Littler - AAT Level 4 student

Phil Toomer was my personal tutor and has spent many hours helping me. Phil genuinely cares about the lives and success of his students and I have never been left without support. Phil routinely goes above and beyond the responsibilities of a tutor. He has been a teacher and a councillor, being the friendly voice who upholds high standards of ethics and excellence, fitting with AAT’s values.

Josephine Littler - AAT Level 4 student

The tutor team are available outside of the normal 9-5, always greeting me cheerfully and giving the motivation, encouragement and knowledge I’ve needed to gain good marks in AAT exams.

Josephine Littler - AAT Level 4 student

I will miss the team at FI as I complete my last AAT exam and recommend any prospective student to study with First Intuition.

Josephine Littler - AAT Level 4 student

I’m not sure I can really do justice in saying how fabulous Phil is. He’s been amazing. He’s believed in me when I haven’t, he’s marked papers immediately and even the day before an exam, he’s given advice and little tips that have made all the difference and he’s always been there.

He’s brilliant and his dedication to his job has helped me obtain my distinction.


Your team and set up are great and I wouldn’t dream of studying anywhere else. The notes are clear, simple to understand and easy to use. The online teaching makes difficult concepts easier to grasp and every tutor has been helpful and informative. Thanks to FI, I feel confident in starting my next venture –   my ACA studies with FI.  You should be incredibly proud of your amazing team. They really are fab and make FI the first choice when studying.


I have been with several colleges and have struggled to pass my last exam at AAT. The support I received from Jeff Grimston was second to none. Always available when I needed something answering and I passed first time. I would highly recommend First Intuition to anybody who is sitting AAT exams. Thanks to Jeff I can finally move on with my career

Sam H

I am proud to say you guys got me through all 3 levels with first time passes for every exam. I truly believe this is down to your brilliant material, lectures and tutor support. Phil was my tutor and he always gave great feedback on my mocks and any questions I had.


The level of customer service that I receive and the learning satisfaction that I feel is a true reflection of their dedication to the profession and their goal of being the best. You are not a number with this college, I feel I receive a personal, professional service with staff who really are knowledgeable, not just from a book but in the real world.

Andy Murray

I honestly don’t have a bad word to say about my AAT journey so far with First Intuition. Nick has been my tutor since I started with Level 2 and he has been so supportive and helpful, especially whilst studying away from college. The material is brilliant! I really enjoy the lectures and find them engaging.

Amy Skinner

The level of support is first class. Every single member of the First Intuition team care about their students getting good results. I started with them two years ago and during that time they have experienced considerable growth through word of mouth recommendations from happy students. I love First Intuition because they are always there for me when I need them.

Deanna Sharratt

First Intuition made distance learning enjoyable, manageable and intriguing. They made me want to learn. It wasn’t a chore! The material was easy to use and the online lectures were great! Nick was another asset at FI; always keen to go the extra mile to help me when I was unsure or in a rut!

Sally Watson

The support I get from First Intuition is amazing. First Intuition make my studying easier with excellent study resources, willingness to help and a friendly approach. My tutor always goes that extra mile and is always there when needed. My assignments are marked extremely quickly with full feedback. And the bonus is he has great sense of humor too!

Katarina Kilianova

You can tell from the AAT student facebook page that FI is a front runner for learning AAT. You go above and beyond for your students, even the students that don’t study with FI. I can imagine you have been getting busier and busier but your customer service has still stayed top-notch.

Hannah Wroe

First Intuition are like no other provider and it’s the reason why I love studying with them. Yes, the study material and online lectures are brilliant but the level of support they deliver is unique and goes far beyond anything I expected from an educational provider. My tutor was their every step of the way, to the point where I felt he was more excited about my results than I was!

James Duggan

First Intuition is different from other colleges because of their friendly nature. I have regular communication with my tutor who is genuinely interested about my progress and who always reminds me that he is there for me if I need help with anything. I love First Intuition because they work as a team. And I feel part of that team.

Katarina Kilianova

The tutors at First Intuition are in one word “amazing”. Having transferred from another distance learning provider as I was struggling under their tutorship, FI took me under their wing and supported me tremendously to ensure that I passed my exam resits first time. My tutor at First Intuition always had time for me, I honestly could not fault his support or knowledge in anyway.

James Duggan

I love the course material that First Intuition produce because it is really interesting which is important when studying at home, and it combines with their fantastic online resources and webinars which are highly worth watching!

Jay Deacon

The level of study support I receive from First Intuition is perfect, they are always there for me, nothing is too much trouble, it’s as little or as much as I need. Also, to them, I never have a silly question!​

Jo Kent

I was recommended FI and I done a trial. The difference in everything was huge. It was a breath of fresh air how it was all laid out in order. The material was excellent; short online videos which run through the whole material.  I could listen to the videos, where they read it out as well as explain in different ways and give examples to help it sink in. I changed provider to FI just before my first exam and my god I’m glad I did!!  Read more about Louise’s story here

Louise Harris

I just wanted to say already how pleased I am that I have switched provider it is like moving from Night to Day. I am totally shocked at the difference.

Louise Carpenter

I can’t thank you enough for all your support. You’ve been so patient with me and it’s finally paid off! First Intuition are an invaluable resource for those of us on our journey to qualification. I couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you a thousand times.

Erika Vessey

Jade, thanks so much for all your help (and Nick when I spoke to him), you were both amazing and you were always really helpful and willing to speak to me and help me.  I heard such amazing things about First Intuition and my experience with you guys exceeded the expectations I had, even after seeing hundreds of amazing reviews.  I will definitely be recommending FI if someone ever asks me.

AAT Level 4 Student

I have used First Intuition for level 3 & 4 AAT, passing all tests first time. I could not be happier with the level of service provided, I have reached out with many questions and have always received a prompt, detailed and understanding reply. Not only has my allocated tutor supported me through each unit but the wider team at FI have also been a great help. 

Jake Douglas

I have found the revision books and videos to be more than needed to pass each exam but where I have struggled on topics, more material was also provided for me. I would not consider anyone else for my future learning. Thank you for getting me through the difficulties of studying.
