ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

ACCA’s Gold and Platinum Approved Learning Partners enjoy a range of benefits from their approved status such as advertising opportunities, marketing support from ACCA and brand enhancement by association with ACCA.

If your organisation is thinking of applying for approval, read through this section for details of the full range of advantages the approval scheme offers.

As an Approved Learning Partner at Gold or Platinum level, you can take advantage of the following exclusive benefits that will provide you with a competitive edge over non-approved providers:

ACCA students can see you are quality assured 

Students will know you have been assessed against ACCA's widely recognised and highly regarded global best practice benchmarks. They have our assurance that your ACCA tuition is high quality and that you have efficient student support frameworks in place.

Enhance your brand

By becoming an Approved Learning Partner, you not only show students and their employers that you are committed to providing high quality tuition and student support, but also enhance your own reputation by association with ACCA.

Exclusive access to development opportunities and tools

You will have access to a wide range of development opportunities, tools and learning provider events provided by ACCA to support you in continuously improving the service you provide to students. The tools we provide include free results analysis reports at each exam session, for both paper-based and computer-based exams, as well as a range of tools available in the Education Hub.

Results Analysis Service

All Approved Learning Partners participate in the results analysis, at each applicable exam session, as a requirement of their approval. You can find out how your students are performing against worldwide pass rates at each exam session, for both paper and computer-based exams.

Excellent customer service

When you become an ACCA Approved Learning Provider, we will ensure that you are provided with excellent customer service and support by ACCA's headquarters and national office network.

ACCA will promote your institution

You will have an entry on ACCA’s online database of learning providers including up to 100 words of promotional text. You will also benefit from advertising opportunities on ACCA’s website, in ‘Student Accountant’ – our student ezine and through ACCA Access – our direct mailing service. See our advertising page for the details.

We will also promote your approved status by strongly recommending that our current and potential students study with ALPs. We will highlight the high quality learning experience they can expect from approved providers.

Online services: you will have access to your own, unique account. Through this, you will have the facility to maintain your details, apply to upgrade your approval, apply for re-approval, use our results analysis service and access past results analysis reports. Online tools and resources will be available to you in our Education Hub.

Marketing tools and support: you will receive a certificate of your approval from us, our distinctive logo to use on your advertising and use of either the Gold or Platinum approved title. ACCA's latest posters and flyers will be provided to promote your courses. You will also benefit from the regular online advertising that ACCA utilises to promote Approved Learning Partners.
