“PwC has an outstanding reputation in professional services, and we’re proud to become an official ACCA provider for their prestigious academy”, said Vitaly Klopot, interim Commercial Director at LSBF Professional School. “This is a great foundation for the development of our Professional Education division, and an encouraging step forward for the future of our publishing business.”
“PwC’s CEE Academies, Platinum ACCA approved learning partner and certified in many finance, HR and project management qualifications in major CEE markets, start a new relationship with LSBF. We believe the ACCA learning materials delivered by LSBF will support our students to demonstrate the highest level of knowledge, ethical and professional standards.” said Olga Cileckova, PwC director, ACCA CEE Centre of excellence based in Czech Republic.
The materials will be delivered in hard-copy and electronic format to PwC sites across the region. In order to increase their chances to pass the ACCA exams, learners will have access to LSBF’s exclusive rich-media learning materials accessed through the award-winning online learning platform.
With a greater focus on exam success combined with professional development, LSBF’s ACCA programme was designed to help students distinguish themselves from other accounting and finance professionals, providing all the practical skills that employers look for via a wide range of flexible study modes, including full time, part-time and online. The ACCA programme is part of LSBF’S robust portfolio of professional courses, which also includes training courses for the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA) and the Association of Accounting Technician's (AAT) qualifications.
