ACCA collaborates with BPP Professional Education on support and training for ACCA tutors

Developed by ACCA, in collaboration with BPP Professional Education, and using BPP’s online classroom learning environment, this free of charge ACCA Tutor Excellence programme supports tutors so they can help their students’ progress through the ACCA qualification.

The programme is accessed through ACCA’s online Education Hub - a secure area that provides ACCA tutors with tools to help them offer the rigorous and high quality tuition demanded by the ACCA Qualification.

Alison McHugh, director of education at ACCA, says: ‘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. 

‘ACCA already offers face-to-face Train the Trainer events across its markets, but this ground breaking programme means ACCA can reach every tutor, wherever they are, and help them to improve their teaching skills.’

The programme features more than 20 learning units and three e-assessment checkpoints, covering:

  • Guidance through the learning, revision and final preparation phases
  • The role of the tutor support resources provided by ACCA
  • The differences between academic and professional qualification teaching
  • Learning methodologies, presentation skills and creating a dynamic classroom environment
  • Teaching for computer based exams (including the new F5–F9 CBE)
  • Exam skills, exam focus and question debriefing
  • Supporting students with exemptions, choosing between option exams and their PER

The programme has been developed for ACCA tutors who are new to teaching ACCA and looking to get started, as well as those more experienced ACCA tutors looking to improve their delivery or find new approaches.

Alison McHugh concludes: ‘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.’
