Aplus Training Sponsors the Plymouth Herald Business Awards

Aplus Training Sponsors the Plymouth Herald Business Awards

​Last Thursday Aplus Training were proud to sponsor the Apprenticeship Development award at this years Plymouth Herald Business Awards with the ceremony taking place at the Plymouth Pavillions. The award was won by SWH Group, who are a highway service and construction business operating in Plymouth.

This year is a crucial year for businesses looking to take on or continue with Apprentices due to the Apprenticeship Levy introduced by the Government in April of this year.

As last year, the event on Thursday was a fantastic affair and a great celebration of the truly amazing businesses Plymouth has to offer.

If you are looking to take on an Apprentice or are at all confused about Levy and what it means for your business then please give us a call on 01752 256 610.

Sizeable increase in pay for Apprentices as part of new National Minimum Wage rates

Sizeable increase in pay for Apprentices as part of new National Minimum Wage rates

​As of 1st October 2015, both new and existing apprentices in the UK will notice a sizeable increase in their hourly wage following the new National Minumum Wage (NMW) rates announced this week. Apprentices will have a 57p increase in their salary to £3.30 per hour making this a much larger increase than what was originally suggested by the Low Pay Commission (LPC) earlier in March 2015.

Of course this is still a minimum NMW rate for apprentices and many employers will want to pay more but it is evidence that apprentices are becoming much more valued within the working industry and that undertaking an apprenticeship is definitely a worthwhile and fantastic route to consider following full time education.

CIMA 2015 SYLLABUS CHANGES – the thoughts of Martin Green, CIMA Tutor at Aplus training

CIMA 2015 SYLLABUS CHANGES – the thoughts of Martin Green, CIMA Tutor at Aplus training

Many students are coming to the end of their accounting technician qualification and thinking about moving on to a chartered accountancy qualification. Those in industry and management accountancy, who are thinking about the Chartered Institute of Management Accountancy (CIMA) path, need to know about the major changes being made to the CIMA syllabus starting from 1st January 2015.

Traditionally chartered accountancy exams have been 3 hours of hand written graft followed by a two month wait for results as exams are all human marked. CIMA has departed from this approach as most of its exams will, in future, be 90 minutes, undertaken on a computer, and with instant provisional results. Furthermore candidates will no longer have to wait for the bi-annual main exam sittings but can book exams on demand at a nearby centre.

Under the old syllabus there were 3 levels (imaginatively called levels 1, 2 & 3) of 3 exams each (Financial Accounting (F), Management Accounting and Performance (P) and Enterprise Strategy (E)). Each of these was three hours long (with 20 minutes pre-reading time) with answers handwritten – can anyone write for 3 hours non-stop these days without getting a sprained wrist and a dent in the finger? - and culminated in a final case study that tested in one place everything learned in the preceding 9 exams (T4). From 1st January 2015, the 3 exams (E, F & P) at each level (1, 2 & 3) broadly remain but will be 90 minutes long, comprise short form and multiple choice questions and computer marked there and then. They can be sat in a variety of locations near our main centres of Exeter and Plymouth.

What’s not to like, you may be thinking at this stage? Well now for the less good news. The breadth and depth of the knowledge required for each exam has not changed - students will have to know just as much. On top of that, the pass mark will rise from 50% to 70% to reflect the fact that it is generally easier to answer 1 and 2 mark short form and multiple choice questions than it is to construct an answer to a 25 mark question. Also two new 3 hour handwritten case studies have been slotted in at the end of the level 2 and 3 exams, presumably to maintain rigour in the qualification because they are perceived to enhance practical application of acquired knowledge. So instead of 9 exams and a case study, would be chartered management accountants must successfully negotiate 9 exams and 3 case studies.

CIMA have gone some way to updating the way its accountancy qualifications are examined and administered without, it will hope, appearing to have “dumbed down” the qualification in a way that would reduce its esteem with employers.

At Aplus training we have revamped our CIMA tutoring approach to take advantage of the new flexibilities. Students used to sit exams two at a time twice a year spending 8 days in the classroom in April and October – away from their offices often at their busiest times. We have established a programme, delivered by tutors with years of industry, practice and teaching experience in which students will sit exams one at a time on four separate occasions in the year studying with us in eight two day bursts dotted throughout. In this way it will still be possible to qualify in 3 years and, with pass rates in excess of 80%, Aplus are the right people to rely on to help get you there.

Our CIMA tutor writes: A nutshell guide to CIMA’s new syllabus

Our CIMA tutor writes: A nutshell guide to CIMA’s new syllabus

Starting in January 2015, CIMA move to a new syllabus. The three pillars (enterprise, performance and finance) remain as do the three levels (1 - operations, 2 – management and 3 – strategy) but a new case study testing the whole level E, F and P has been added at levels 1 and 2. This case study will need to be passed to move on to the next level.

In future the exams will be 90 minutes, computerised and taken on demand with instant results. The case studies will be 3 hours and human marked.

Transition arrangements are sketchy but my take is as follows:

  • any passes currently  held will be carried into the new syllabus
  • any passes achieved this year will be carried forwards into the new syllabus
  • if you clear a level before Jan 2015, you will move up to the next level without taking the case study
  • there looks like there may be one re-sit opportunity in Feb 2015 to still clear a level without taking the case study

The advice to students is basically to carry on as before but if you can clear the whole of level 1 or 2 in the November 2014

sitting, it would save you the extra case study. Many of our students are sitting E1 and P1 in May and will do F1 in November so are well positioned. Those who are doing just E1 or P1 in May 2014 are recommended to do the other two level 1’s in November. We will look to run all three level 1 courses for the November 2014 sitting to help with this.

For any further information, please do not hesitate to contact our CIMA Lecturer, Martin Green, at martin.green@aplustraining.co.uk or call 01752 256610.

From 1st Sept 2013, Edexcel (Pearson) will no longer be offering Accounting qualifications

Edexcel have confirmed that as of 1st September 2013, they will no longer be offering Accounting qualifications and they have pointed us in the direction of the following notice.

http://pearsonwbl.edexcel.com/quals/NVQ-competence-based-qcf/Accounting/pages/viewNotice.aspx?notice=3254

Therefore, going forward Aplus training (SW) Ltd will no longer be able to run this qualification going forward.  For students already registered with us under Edexcel Accounting, the certification end date is 31st August 2015, so still plenty of time to get these learners through. 

If this was something you had been considering, give the team a ring to discuss other options.
