Registered Learning Partners

Programme overview

The aims of the programme are to:

  • approve quality ACCA learning providers, who have demonstrated their success in supporting students through non-core ACCA qualifications

As a Registered Learning Partner, you can take advantage of the following exclusive benefits that will provide you with a competitive edge over non-accredited providers:

  • ACCA members can see you are quality assured
  • enhance your brand

We will also promote your approved status by strongly recommending that our members study with your institution and explaining to them the high-quality learning experience they can expect from accredited providers.
