ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

Approved Learning Partners

Choosing how you are going to study will be one of the most important decisions you make during your time preparing for your exams. Will you study with a tuition provider offering face to face or distance learning tuition? How do you decide from all the providers offering tuition which will be most suitable for your needs?

Before you decide on which study method is right for you, watch our video. There are real benefits to studying for your exams with an Approved Learning Partner. But don't just take our word for it, lots of students have said the same thing.

There are numerous tuition providers and a wide variety of different study methods, so selecting the one which is right for you can be difficult. Taking recommendations from friends and colleagues can provide some guidance, but what is suitable for one individual may not be the best option for another.

If you choose to study with a tuition provider, ACCA strongly recommends you opt for one which is approved under ACCA's Approved Learning Partners (ALP) programme, as you can be sure:

  • They have been assessed against ACCA's widely recognised and highly-regarded global best practice benchmarks.
  • They have access to a range of development opportunities and tools provided by ACCA.
  • An investigation will be carried out in the event of any student complaints.

There are two levels of approval under this programme, Platinum and Gold.

To find out more about the ALP programme, please see the link to the right of the page. Here you will find further details of the two levels of approval and links to search ACCA's tuition provider directory.
