ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

ACCA's Approved Learning Partner programme gives formal recognition to leading tuition providers for the quality tuition and support that they offer ACCA students. It is the platform by which we can develop a mutually beneficial relationship, increasing the global availability of effective and innovative ACCA course delivery and first-class student support.


The aims of the programme are to:

  • approve quality ACCA tuition providers, who have demonstrated their success in supporting students through the ACCA qualifications
  • support our learning partners in providing students with the opportunity to succeed.

The levels of approval are:

  • Gold
  • Platinum

Approval is given to tuition providers who demonstrate that they meet the challenging performance targets set by ACCA. Gold and Platinum approvals are granted only to quality tuition providers that ACCA is confident to recommend to students.

Gold approval is the first level of the programme and requires tuition providers to meet a range of challenging performance targets covering the institution's overall management and more specifically its ACCA course management and delivery.

Gold approval can be given to tuition providers who are teaching any ACCA qualification – ACCA, Foundation level and DipIFR – either through face-to-face tuition or by distance learning.

Platinum approval is the highest and most prestigious level of the programme and available for both face-to-face and distance learning providers.

In working with Platinum approved learning partners, ACCA aims to provide students with access to the tuition and support they need to become ACCA members. For this reason, Platinum approval is given only to those who teach the ACCA Qualification. To be considered for Platinum approval, tuition providers must already be Gold approved and, in addition to the performance targets that have been demonstrated to attain Gold approval, the tuition provider must also meet ACCA's Platinum performance targets and Platinum pass-rate targets over two consecutive sets of exam results.
