Your Partner in Learning
The ICAEW recognises the level of support that you, as students, need in order to study for the ACA qualification. We work with tuition providers and higher education institutions from all over the world to provide the resources and guidance you need for your exams.
The scheme is based on a set of core principles and is set out into two parts – professional education providers and higher education institutions. Partner in Learning status is awarded to organisations that can demonstrate their commitment to ensuring consistency in the quality of tuition provision for ICAEW qualifications.
If you see this logo on any tuition provider or on higher education institution’s marketing material, this means they are an ICAEW Partner in Learning.
ICAEW works closely with a number of higher education institutions to provide unique options to students. Institutions that engage with ICAEW through activities such as graduate recruitment, credit for prior learning, embedding ICAEW qualifications and ACA modules into university programmes, and purchase or use our learning materials can apply for recognition as an ICAEW Partner in Learning.
Professional education providers offering tuition for ICAEW qualifications can apply to join the Partner in Learning scheme also. These are also known as tuition providers and many of you will be studying with a tuition provider to progress through your ACA exams. We review a sample of tuition centres on an annual basis to ensure the core principles are being maintained, and that you have the resources you need to complete your studies.
Each year, ACA tutors and academics from around the world attend conferences held at Chartered Accountants’ Hall in London. At the tutor conference, tutors receive updates on the ACA, syllabus and attend examiner-led workshops in the Advanced and Professional Level exams.
The higher education conference brings together all of our academic partners to network, debate and discuss opportunities and challenges within higher education. Workshops, research and ICAEW updates are all part of the day and it is important to maintain an ongoing dialogue between the academic and professional worlds for the benefit of students studying at university.
If you are looking for tuition for the ACA or ICAEW CFAB, the ICAEW website lists Partners in Learning and the type of tuition they offer, including classroom, online learning or one-to-one study. Search for tuition providers near you at icaew.com/exams. If you are studying the ACA, as an ACA student with a training agreement, be sure to ask your employer on the tuition options available to you.
If you are interested in discovering how we work with different universities go to icaew.com/hei where you can find a breakdown of the support we provide each higher education institution on the Partner in Learning scheme.
