One of the main reasons why I chose ACCA was because of the flexibility of the qualification. The ACCA qualification will increase my career progression opportunities and not limit me to one line of work. I now have the opportunity to branch into any industry or field within the world of finance.
ACCA’s global recognition will open up international opportunities and give employers the confidence that they can place me in a broad range of demanding situations with certainty that I will undertake my duties professionally, effectively and competently.
What kept me motivated throughout my journey?
Attitude determines your altitude. I’ve always lived by; “if you have the right attitude, you are half way there”! The rest you can learn. What has kept me driven is my attitude and hunger to learn and grow and is definitely what takes me through the long study hours. I set a goal and I put my all to in ensure I achieve it. It’s a lot of hard work and sacrifice but it is worth it in the end.
Editor’s note: We would like to thank Reneilwe on her top achievement. Reneilwe will soon join many ACCA Members achieving global greatness.
ACCA collaborates with BPP Professional Education on support and training for ACCA tutors
An exclusive online programme for tutors who teach and support ACCA (the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants) students goes live today. 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.
“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.” – Alison McHugh, director of education at ACCA
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.’
