More about our study options

Distance Learning
At the heart of all our courses is our distance learning course. You receive a wealth of targeted material that allows you to study in your own time and at your own pace. The material comprises:

  • Study manuals
  • Question banks
  • Memory joggers
  • Audio visual lectures – based on the Tolley Tax Tutor product
  • Practice exams – which are marked by Tolley
  • Access to tutor support via the online Tolley Academy

All Question Banks and Practice exams are accessed via our innovative Timed On-Screen Mock (TOM) system. TOM simulates the real exam to enable you to view and answer the questions in your question banks on-screen and to type up and submit your mock exams online, supporting you in your preparation for your online ATT and CTA exams. See how TOM works in practice.

You can opt for a ‘Print and Online’ option which gives you paper and online copies of the study manuals, question banks and memory joggers, as well as access to the online-only materials above. The ‘Online’ option does not include any paper copies.

Enhance your Distance Learning with face-to-face classroom courses delivered by experienced tutors. These courses will explain the technical topics in a straightforward way, focusing on the key areas for the examination. Computer Based Examination (CBE) tuition will be in the form of pre-recorded webinars.

Online Tuition Live (OTL)
Online Tuition Live (OTL) provides you with the same high-quality teaching you receive in the classroom but with the added flexibility of joining from the comfort of your own home or office.

You will have the choice of full or half day courses and all sessions are recorded so you can watch any sessions you miss, or re-cap on any topics you’re unsure of.

Fine tune your technical knowledge and practice your exam technique via face-to-face classroom courses. You will practice questions under exam conditions in class and then review them together with the tutor to ensure your knowledge and exam technique are spot on. Revision courses are not available as an online option.

Guaranteed Pass Scheme (GPS)
Our experience shows that students who follow the Tolley training programme and provide regular study time have a very high chance of passing their examinations. As a result, we have introduced a Guaranteed Pass Scheme.

The classroom option comprises distance learning (print and online), face-to-face tuition and revision courses. The online option provides the same elements but the tuition courses will be delivered via Online Tuition Live.

All eligible students enrolled on this programme will be given one free distance learning and revision course in the unlikely event that you fail your examination.
