Providing members and students with user-friendly digital resources

As a forward-thinking professional accounting body, ACCA believes in being at the forefront in continuing to play a key role to support its students and members through the current challenges posed by the pandemic and beyond.

Whilst operating within official guidelines, ACCA has been playing an integral role in the continuity of delivering its qualifications, providing the relevant guidance and leadership, committing to keep members up-to-date with relevant online resources as well as help equip its students with all the necessary resources required for their studies.

From revision-based questions to mock examinations, access to learning materials, expert tutor guidance, E-Learning platforms, recorded video lectures, blended learning option and online offerings and a learning management system, ACCA has fully geared their resources and services to ensure that their students receive the maximum support to navigate their studies during the pandemic with no disruptions. 

Additionally, ACCA’s new COVID-19 online hub contains relevant information and insights for members and other stakeholders – such as regularly updated economic analysis, CPD resources for members, and advice on how businesses can plan through a crisis. This hub is being refreshed regularly and ACCA has also boosted online CPD and webinars for members and learning support for students.

In addition, ACCA has also geared its Approved Learning Partners to support and strengthen efforts in embracing technology and to continuously enhance their digital teaching platforms to be student centric which will lead to greater learning. Chosen through a stringent process of quality checks, ACCA’s current portfolio of Approved Learning Partners include Achievers London Business School, Icon Business School, Imperial College of Business Studies – Kandy Branch, Alpha Business School, Premier Partners and Wisdom Institute for International Studies.

ACCA Sri Lanka Head Nilusha Ranasinghe explained, “As a global professional body with stakeholders across 179 countries, we’ve had to review, change and find alternative solutions to ensure we remain connected with our learning providers, members and students, despite the current challenges. Having the resilience to manage and support our students and members by responding to them through the provision of timely information and accessibility of study and training material was our main aim during this period and this is what we have managed to achieve through launching all the digital resources that we have initiated currently. Our digital capabilities have helped us to continue to represent our members and fulfil our responsibilities towards our student and we will continue to do so going forward.”
