Who does the teaching and where does it happen? How many students are allowed for a course?

We have a group of well-qualified, industry-experienced and professional teachers. They are in the teaching field for more than 10 years and worked in a variety of sectors to offer practical applications of theoretical knowledge. Our teachers are involved in continued professional development (CPD) so they know the trend of the sector and also what the employers are looking for.

All teaching is organised at our conveniently located Harrow based training centre, which is equipped with modern IT resources and relevant resources including books, handouts and presentations.

We believe that teaching and learning experience should be interactive, and everyone should have opportunities to discuss and ask questions. We, therefore, keep the class size as small as possible. We don't accept more than 10 candidates in a class to ensure everyone gets personalised support.

How are the courses structured?

Our courses are structured in a way that allows candidates to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice. We discuss theories to build conceptual understanding, and then do exercises for applying them into practice to gain more confidence. Such approaches help candidates use tools and techniques in work scenario as well as pass the tests.

We organise mock tests and revision classes to further boost knowledge and understanding on the topics we teach.

How can your courses be of help in order to achieve a career goal?

The courses we offer are job-oriented and are highly demanded by employers. Courses such as Using Accounting and Payroll Software (SAGE), AAT Accounting and Bookkeeping and CIMA Business as well as Management Accounting are globally recognised and regarded qualifications. As the AAT courses are well recognised, candidates get exemptions if they want to further progress to chartered accounting qualification.

Our IT courses such as one-day web design, social media marketing help people start their own business in this sector. In addition, employers also expect people to be competent in using Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Outlook). We train people so that they can use the tools confidently and enhance their IT skills.

Do the students receive any certificates at the end of the course? If yes, where is this recognized?

AAT, CIMA and SAGE qualifications are globally recognised. We are an approved centre for AAT, a learning partner for CIMA and business partner for SAGE. Candidates studying these courses at Learning Pro get certified after successfully completing their courses.

Is there a comprehensive final exam? What is the passing grade for it? What happens if somebody fails?

There is a comprehensive final assessment including a number of unit-based assessments for AAT and CIMA qualifications. These are all computer-based assessments (CBAs), which is taken at the end of every unit at Learning Pro, as we are also CBA centre for these bodies. 

The passing grade for AAT courses is 70%. We aim to prepare all our candidates to be confident in using the tools, techniques, knowledge and skills in the workplace and in exam scenario; however, in a less likely situation, if a candidate fails, we offer further supports.
