Exeter Partner Jon Westley said “We are all delighted that Katie has done so well in her exams to date. I know she has spent many dedicated hours studying and this has definitely paid off with her excellent results.”

He went on to say, “Thompson Jenner has a long history of training young people who are starting their careers in accountancy and tax. We invest heavily in their development and training and believe that our staff are our greatest asset. It’s always very rewarding to see successes”

Katie doesn’t have much time to dwell on her success, she is already making excellent progress on her first Level 3 unit.
