New virtual learning environment is here
CIPFA’s Education and Training Centre, CETC, is taking its study support to another level with the launch of CIPFA Learning this month.
CETC’s new virtual learning environment will become available from 28 July, with course enrolments open on 17 July.
PQs (and their employers) will in the future be able to choose from three study modes: face-to-face; web class; and self-study.
CIPFA is promising that whatever route you chose you will experience the same familiar, high-quality CETC tuition.
The online ‘one-stop-shop’ approach looks set to be a winner as CIPFA delivers all learning, from training and learning plans, workbooks, live and on demand web classes, presentations, video clips, discussion forum and web links, to revision and assessment materials.
There is also a clearer, more streamlined pricing structure, offering everyone greater transparency when planning and costing their accountancy training. The self-study package, for example, comes in at just £3,100 for the whole 12 papers. This is going to be hard for any of other accountancy body or tuition provider to match.
CETC’s Nicola Campbell said the time is right for a more integrated approach. The new web classes, and live interactive learning fit neatly with CIPFA’s online exam system. Campbell explained that following the launch of online exams in 2016, CETC has been working closely with the CIPFA Student Network, employer and students to ensure it provides the sort of study options to fit current student expectations. She said PQs also needed to know that “learning is easy and simple with CIPFA”.
