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

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.

Tuition
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.

NEW FOR 2020 EXAMINATIONS – Online Tuition Live (OTL)
We have now enhanced our tuition offering by introducing Online Tuition Live for our students. This provides an extra level of flexibility, allowing you to benefit from our taught courses without having to travel to a study centre.

OTL will cover the same content to that which is taught in our classroom sessions and will be delivered online in half-day sessions for some of our ATT and CTA courses. Once booked, simply log in at the allocated time and watch the tutor live, whilst asking questions in real-time. All sessions will be recorded to ensure you can watch any sessions you miss, or re-cap on any topics you’re unsure of.

We are initially offering Online Tuition Live for the taught phases of ATT Papers 1, 2 and 4 and Advanced Technical Individuals, Owner-Managed Businesses and Taxation of Major Corporates for CTA for May 2020.

Revision
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.

Material Only
This comprises the hard copy study manual, question bank and memory jogger. It does not include practice exams, online access or tutor support.

CBE Question Practice
Available for all the CBEs, this comprises an online question bank and access to our online test centre.
