Learning & Teaching Methods

This course is primarily designed for face to face learning with you attending your lessons for the specified hours within the approval document. However, there may be periods of study where the government advises TEC Partnership that it is not safe to open campuses or there is limited access due to social distancing measures. If the campus is closed TEC Partnership will deliver your sessions online and offer you the necessary support and resources remotely. If there is limited access due to social distancing measures a blended model will be adopted with some lessons happening in small groups and others happening using online sessions and support. We will make decisions on the delivery hours for each programme as government advice becomes clearer. We are currently reviewing this programme and some elements of the published programmes may need to change in order for students to achieve. We will advise you of these changes once they are completed.

These courses are delivered onsite at Grimsby Institute in the classroom for 4 hours a week, with the option of studying either 1 day a week or 2 evenings – please note days could change from Year 1 to Year 2.  If it is deemed necessary, the course may run with live online sessions instead of onsite sessions.

What next?

By studying for this qualification, students will acquire professional accountancy and finance skills that will be useful throughout their careers.
