We are proud to have been nominated for AAT's "BEST NEW TRAINING PROVIDER" & "BEST USE OF E-LEARNING" awards in 2016.
Our orientation is towards learning the topics first by understanding them. Memorising just to pass the exams and mastering a few short-cuts is rote-learning and we do not support that. We want you to learn the topics, ask questions, challenge the notions, pass the exams and then take it further to build your career and further studies. A mere 'pass' allows you to claim the qualification in your CV. Learning takes you further – it remains with you and lays foundation for career progression.
Learning is a cognitive process – it happens in your mind. No one but you can make it happen. Our role, therefore, is to facilitate the process and create an environment where you move from known (your current knowledge and skills) to unknown (new frontiers of knowledge).
The more you understand the topic, less you have to remember. That is learning for life.
We do not send a box full of books and learning materials and recorded videos and ask you to just get on with it and teach yourself when you enrol for one of our courses. We have lectures, delivered live online every week (sometimes twice a week) at fixed times, where our lecturers will guide you through all the concepts you need to learn. Our learning materials supplement our lectures.
Studying online is a very flexible and convenient mode of study. You can log onto our interactive Online Classroom from any place where you have access to a computer with an internet connection. You can even log on using a tablet or a smart phone using apps for Android and iOS devices, although we suggest that you use a screen that is large enough for you to view the content on the digital whiteboard.
By studying online you will be able to eliminate the time and costs associated with commuting to and from a training provider. It is also more comfortable: you do not need to brave the freezing winter weather anymore; you can study from the comfort of your warm cosy home.
You can also join our LIVE online sessions from your workplace during day time if you opt for day time study options.
"Being a full time employed person I have greatly benefited from the opportunity of following the lessons online as this has cut a significant amount of time in travelling to and from college."Christina (read full review )
All our online classes have limited sizes. This allows the lecturers and learners to get to know each other. Our lecturers will know you and your learning style and preferences better. They will also monitor your learning progress and support (including one to one tutorial support) where necessary. Our interactive classroom software allows interactions amongst learners as well.
We understand that some of our prospective learners might feel that the prospect of studying online to be beyond their IT skills. However, it could not be further from the truth. You don't have to install any special software to access our interactive Online Classroom. All you need is a computer, an internet connection, a web browser and Adobe Flash Player installed on your computer. Other than that you will need some basic software such as Adobe Acrobat Reader and Microsoft Office.
As for the hardware, you will need a basic computer (see minimum system requirements) and a headset with a microphone so that you can communicate with your lecturer and fellow learners. That is it.
Still not sure? Why not attend a live demo session and we will help you iron out any minor issues and you can judge for yourself if you are comfortable with it or not.
Our course timings and structures have been created by experts based on the feedback from our learners. As a result, the majority of our course options are scheduled either on evenings or weekends. We have different options to suit your requirements.
We do not offer tiered pricing structure whereby you would have to pay additional fees for revision and exams preparation. Our all inclusive learning plans include basic tuitions, revision and practice activities, exams preparation and group or one to one tutorial support where necessary. All these are inbuilt into the fees we charge.
The fees we charge also include all the books and handouts prepared by us. However, you need to consider some additional costs (AAT student membership fees and the exam fees) that are not included in our fees structure.
Our specialist lecturers have years of experience in trade and industry. We strongly believe that to teach accounting as a subject, one needs to have relevant and practical industrial experience. Our lecturers, therefore, do not deliver lectures just reading from the books. They talk from their experience and share their practical skills.
We do not have rigid entry (enrolment) points. You can talk to us round the year and we offer multiple points where you can join us. You can join us to do the full course of just one subject. It is all up to you. Contact us today to get started.
We recognise that everyone learns at a different pace and in a different style. We, therefore, want to be patient with you. Our learning plans include sufficient time for basic learning, practice activities, revision and exam preparation. Our learning plans are designed by industry experts who have years of experience in delivering and managing the qualifications. Rather than pushing you to face your exams in the shortest possible time, our learning schedules and plans help you to consolidate your learning before you take your exams. We aim to make the whole process stress free and enjoyable.
In addition to the scheduled sessions, learners will have options to book limited slots for one to one support (again through live meetings). You may even book a joint session with your friends in the same batch.
In addition to attending the live sessions, you can access recorded versions of the actual sessions. This allows you to catch up with any topic if you have missed it initially. This also allows you to reinforce your learning by accessing the same topic more than once.
Please note, however, that this facility is subject to technical feasibility and should not be used in lieu of attending the sessions.
We are confident that most of our learners who enrol will enjoy the experience. However, on the rare occasion that a learner is not completely satisfied, he/she has the option to withdraw from the course within a specified period from joining the course. The fees will be refunded in full, no questions asked, except for the books and other resources already provided which cannot be refunded for.
