Becoming an ACCA Approved Learning Partner

Our Approved Learning Partner (ALP) programme gives formal recognition to leading learning providers for the quality tuition and support that they offer to our students. It is the platform where we can develop a mutually beneficial relationship, increasing the global availability of effective and innovative course delivery and first-class student support.

Programme overview

We regard our relationship with learning providers as fundamental to the success of its student body. The provision of good tuition, wherever we have students, is a key factor in assisting students in the successful completion of their examinations.

Our Approved Learning Partners demonstrate that they meet our performance targets, representing global best practice in the provision of course tuition and support. The aims of our Approved Learning Partner programme are to:

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


There are three levels of approval
