AAT Courses: Live Online – Level 4

Just because everyday life has changed, doesn’t mean your career must stop. With Distance Learning Plus – Live Online we are offering you the opportunity to continue developing your accountancy skills, boosting your existing accountancy career with our video conference home study accounting course.

What are AAT Distance Learning Plus – Live Online Courses?

Distance Learning Plus –  Live Online offer the advantages and structure usually found only in the classroom courses, but with the social distance and independence of studying from home. This is particularly relevant during the current social distancing measures introduced by the government. If you have access to a computer or device with a webcam suitable for video conferencing, just click to join your scheduled virtual classroom and you are in – joining your tutor and the rest of the class from your own home.

Choose from daytime, evening or weekend timetabled live lectures online, and talk to tutors during the class for live feedback. Additionally, our lectures are recorded for you, so if you miss one you can catch up or re-watch classes for extra revision. We think it’s the safest, most stress-free and motivational way to study.

Who’s it for?

Distance Learning Plus – Live Online suits people who want the benefits of interactive class based learning, enjoy live tutor support and the flexibility and motivation of a tutor-structured approach to their studies, but with the flexibility of joining remotely from wherever you have internet access.

We are potentially all going to have more time on our hands than we had before the social distancing measures were introduced – and with fewer distractions. Now is a good time to prepare and improve your skills and qualifications, ready for when organisations and the economy rebound.

What to expect?

With reduced travel requirements and fewer social gatherings, we might all seize the opportunity to make the most of our new-found spare time.

This unusual time is of particular challenge to us all. Our Distance Learning Plus – Live Online virtual classrooms allow you to enjoy the whole interactive, live classroom experience delivered by our expert tutors from the safety of your own home.

This could be an opportunity for you to push ahead and do more studying than you had considered previously. The perfect time for a career boost.
