What our learners say:

"The online lectures were great, the downloadable practice question workbooks are very helpful, but most of all, McArthur Online feels very human. For Level 2, my old training provider lacked human contact, and didn't really clear up my questions. The video lectures with McArthur Online are much easier to learn from, and Jon talks about things in much more detail but with easy to understand examples. Plus, having a tutor as a direct contact, who actually responds with detailed answers to my email queries, has been essential. On completion of Level 4 in 2021, I got a new job as a Management Accountant for a Digital Marketing Agency – thanks to the subjects learnt at AAT." Rebecca Blundy

"McArthur Online’s teaching strategy meant I was able to grasp the main accounting concepts quickly and effectively - this then enabled me to move onto more advanced and complex areas within my job. It was a win-win! Having Jon and his team on hand 7 days per week to assist me was an absolute life saver on more than one occasion; I was then able to go into all of my exams feeling thoroughly prepared and ready to tackle whatever the papers threw at me! I've thoroughly enjoyed my experience training with McArthur Online and would recommend them to anyone looking to study their AAT qualification!" Charlie Borrett

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
