CTA Platinum Programme Lv1
CTA Level 1 (Postgraduate Diploma in Accounting Sciences: 98231) is a ‘bridge’ to the one-year CTA (CTA Level 2). Although you only cover about 70% of the full CTA level 2 syllabus, it still represents more work, a higher level of integration, and different requirements to undergrad.
Our Platinum Programme has been designed to include more one-on-one lecturer interaction and sim-test marking, to help ensure you’re on the right track and you get direction for your challenges. We know you have limited time, so our videos, notes and test prep videos are aimed to get you to exam technique and questions as efficiently as possible. We’ve added revision from undergrad, (in case you need it!), and we take you through how to tag your open books, where applicable. Your lecturers will be available through the year on our discussion forums for your queries, to motivate you, and sometimes to check up on you!

WHY SHOULD YOU STUDY THIS WITH US?
Our CTA Level 1 Platinum Programme provides you with more one-on-one time with your lecturers. Also exclusive to CTA platinum and new this year, we are including Study Advice lectures from Yvonne Starkey. This, along with the marking of simulated tests and exams with personal and detailed feedback, will help you assess and correct any challenges you may have with your subjects. This personalised assistance adds a lot of value to your studies and saves you a lot of time through the year. Our students also receive a preparation webinar at the start of each test period, to assist with focus and mindset for the preparation for each test and examination.
Our lecturers have worked hard to navigate you through all the material you need to cover, to help you focus on the core topics and concepts, and guide you in terms of how you’ll be expected to approach them in exams. We’ve kept your time challenges in mind, so we’re maximising your efficiency with our lectures.
Your courses will include:
Videos for your CTA content, open book tagging, and for Revision
We’ve focused on the understanding of the topics, to enable you to approach any question, rather than focussing on memory and pure theory. This includes how to highlight and tag the open books you can take into the exams. We’ve added revision content where we think it’s relevant as well. The beauty is that you get to control what you revise, and what you don’t. You can go back to where you need, or stick to the CTA content if that’s all you need.
Exam Technique, One-on-one lecturer time, and marked simulated tests and exams
We also walk you through how to do exam-type questions and past papers. Our videos will help you with your communication skills and planning of answers, to ensure you’re prepared for your exams. Our lecturers will mark a sim-test you attempt and submit. This will speed up your ability to assess your challenges, what to focus on and how to improve your marks. Having more time with your lecturer online always helps to guide, direct and motivate you, according to your specific challenges.
The problem? CTA / PGDA is a very different game, with very different skill requirements. You've signed up for a different game, but you're still playing the old rules!
Every student who signs up to our CTA Platinum Programme will be assigned a personal mentor. Our lecturers are all CA’s (SA), have been where you are now and completely understand what it’s like trying to study while meeting work and personal commitments. They can help you plan, get a sense of perspective and help you focus on the problems that can be solved. They will regularly check in with you to see if you are OK, particularly if they see progress is slowing down and they will hold you accountable which is so key for success with CTA.
Just to be clear, while your personal mentor will help you with non-subject specific issues, you still have access to all of our faculty – we have experienced lecturers for every subject and they are all there to help you with your academic questions.
Examination revision modules
Our Platinum Students get additional exam revision for each subject, where our lecturers go back to the critical concepts for each topic and focus on integration in the exam situation.
Discussion forums and motivation
Our lecturers are available on our discussion forums to answer your queries, motivate you, and check up on you! You’ll also get access to our Platinum ‘motivation’ course where we’ve added more motivational and inspirational content, including interviews with past students who’ve passed and qualified, and other professionals who employ accountants and can give you insight into what they’re looking for from their teams and how they recruit their professional staff.
Please note that purchase of this programme gives you access to the online materials until the 2022 final exams.
