Acca launches new online tutor excellence programme

An exclusive online programme for tutors who teach and support students of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) is now live. The programme, available free of charge and accessed through ACCA’s online Education Hub, was developed by ACCA in collaboration with BPP Professional Education, and uses BPP’s online classroom learning environment to help students progress through the ACCA qualification.

Alison McHugh, director of education at ACCA, said:

"Approximately half of our students study for their ACCA exams with an education provider. This programme gives ACCA tutors around the world - whatever their level of experience in teaching ACCA - access to great tutor training which will help them support their students to become ACCA members."

The programme features more than 20 learning units and three e-assessment checkpoints, including learning methodologies, presentation skills, creating a dynamic classroom environment, exam skills, exam focus and question debriefing, among other things. Although ACCA already offers face-to-face Train the Trainer events across its markets, this new programme means ACCA can reach every tutor, wherever they are, and help them to improve their teaching skills.

McHugh added:

"This is a timely and valuable resource that's aimed at ACCA tutors working in a professional or an academic environment. It's innovative approach gives ACCA tutors around the world access to a consistent programme of learning so they can develop their skills, while making sure the students who study with them can reach their ambition to become an ACCA professionally qualified accountant."
