What some of our learners say:

I have used Learning Pro for my CIMA Courses. My journey has been made dramatically easier with the flexibility that Varun and his team have shown. I also have to mention the quality of the tutors used are fantastic, they have not just a textbook knowledge of the area but a real world understanding which helps bring the course together. I honestly don't think that I would have been able to completed my courses in the time and with the number of first time passes without the support that Learning Pro offers. For anyone considering starting or going back to their CIMA journey you can't go wrong with using Learning Pro.

- Jack, S

I found it an interesting and sometimes challenging experience but the help I received from the tutor and from Learning Pro was invaluable. My tutor is an awesome teacher with the patience of a saint when needed, who always made sure I went into exams prepared.

- Paula, P

My first experience started when I requested information about an AAT course. They replied very swiftly. I received very transparent and clear information about all levels and opportunities. The tutor is great – the lesson delivery is fantastic and yet very challenging. They are also very flexible in terms of timing. Overall, my experience is excellent with Learning Pro, and I highly recommend it to everyone who wishes to start a career in accounting.

- Galina, K

I would like to thank Learning pro for their help and advice not just with my studies but also with my career. I recommend Learning pro to anyone wanting to study accounting.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk 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.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

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.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

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.
