AAYP: Online accounting qualifications - a smart option for employers and staff

Online learning for accountancy can take the grunt work out of the hands of managers, and put the employee in control of their destiny

TRADITIONALLY FOR THOSE embarking on the professional accounting qualification journey, employers would not only choose the awarding body, but the exact course, training provider, study structure and timeframes for completion, and that would usually involve attending some form of classroom study.

The digital age has since transformed the way we learn and get qualified, and online study offers the flexibility of remote study.

Online courses fit around full-time work and personal responsibilities, allowing students to study wherever they like, whenever they like and on whichever device suits best. This may be on a smartphone while commuting, on a tablet in the park or on a laptop at home. Employers can benefit from a reduction in staff leave. Success rates have proven to be unaffected by online study, in fact a study conducted by the Department for Education in the US in 2010 found that students studying online actually performed better than those studying face-to-face.

‘Virtual Learning Campuses’ offered by training providers can cater to all learning styles with a huge range of resources and engaging content to ensure students have everything they need to succeed; videos, quizzes, live online classes – with tutor and peer interaction, case studies, practice tests, online chat box for Tutor contact, student forums, plus career guidance hubs.

Online learning has come a long way in recent years: it isn’t just about e-books. New technology is enhancing today’s online learning experience and with more and more innovation in the pipeline online learning can be a highly interactive, stimulating and rewarding experience.

Home Learning College is a sister company to Accountancy Age’s owner Contentive. It was winner of Best use of E-Learning Award, and AAT Distance Learner of the Year, at the AAT Awards 2016
