Study Courses

Course training for the professional examinations

Be under no illusion, we want you to qualify at the earliest opportunity. We invest a great deal of time and cost in each of our trainees, and we continually review the quality of the training you receive.

Your course training for the ACA exams is provided by First Intuition. It is their task to equip you with all the classroom knowledge you need to pass the exams and give additional support should you need it. It is our task to provide you with all the practical knowledge. It is your task to work and study hard throughout your training contract.

The course training is held at First Intuition’s central London offices, near to Goodman Jones’ offices.

Our examinations policy

We want you to achieve first-time passes. Your constant hard work, coupled with the support from Goodman Jones and First Intuition, should enable you to achieve this. However, we all know that life doesn't always run according to plan.

We would like you to pass the 'Early Hurdle' papers, and the remaining papers at the Professional Stage, at the first attempt. If, for some reason, you have a 'blip', we will look at all the circumstances and discuss with you what the best course of action should be.

Financial support

We will pay all the course and examination costs, and provide you with paid study leave for your first attempt at each exam.

Re-sit course costs are your responsibility, but you will be able to utilise your holiday entitlement or take unpaid study leave for any retake course and exam you wish to attend. We also provide an interest free loan to assist with your cash flow.

Study support

Your study support starts on day 1 when you meet your assigned tutor from First Intuition. They will be your first port of call should you need any assistance at any point, and provide us with regular reports to help us monitor your progress throughout the courses.

Problems don't often arise, but if you are having difficulty with a particular topic a one-to-one tutorial can be arranged. Additionally, many of your work colleagues will be only too pleased to give you help and advice.
