He also affirmed that since being appointed as an ACCA tuition provider they have experienced a large number of students enrolling for the ACCA qualification, which is a sign of confidence that they have in this qualification and in Achiever's. He said "We have up to date continued to offer the best to our students using a team of experienced, qualified and motivated lecturers who all have more than 15 years of experience and our pass rates keep getting better. Lecturing is a passion at Achievers and we will aspire to continuously achieve higher standards of quality in ACCA education which is based on professionalism and ethics and on the guiding principles which are opportunity, skills and competence, reputation, innovation and flexibility."
Mr.Ismail pointed out that the institutes focus has always been on providing quality that directly contributes to the corporate world, where they also instill in students the right attitudes and leadership qualities . This he believed was an aspect that differentiated achievers from any other business school, where many multi national companies have approached them to recruit their students .He believed they have achieved this positive reputation by consistent performance , resulting in them also winning world prizes in recognition for their efforts . They were awarded the Asia business leadership award by CMO in 2010 as a testament to the institute meeting the international standards required by a tuition provider. In addition he was confident that these criteria's have also been instrumental in attracting the best students such as head prefects from many leading schools and top island rankers in Commerce and Maths streams who presently study at achievers.
Voicing her thoughts on why ACCA chose Achievers as a tuition provider, Mrs Aruni Rajakarier Country Manager for ACCA Sri Lanka stated " Achievers is a well known and respected brand in professional education in Sri Lanka and we are very pleased that they are including ACCA in their courses offerings. We believe they will provide a high quality offering to our students as they have a proven track record for doing so consistently and this was one of the key criteria for choosing Achievers as a tuition provider for ACCA. "
She said they are also working closely with them on accreditation as an Approved Learning Partner which ACCA is confident they can obtain ,once they complete teaching for one exam session. She went on to say " The fact that they have the systems and processes to monitor their students performance and the institution's performance is another criteria for choosing them, as ACCA prefers to work with tuition providers who are able to meet the high standards set for accreditation as an Approved Learning Partner. "
Mrs Rajakarier added that "the primary reason for working with Achievers to commence ACCA courses is that it just makes very good business sense for us and we believe it will be good for the development of the country as well. As the largest and fastest growing global accounting body , working with a strong local institution reputed for excellence in professional education gives our students the opportunity to acquire a globally known and respected qualification locally with a tuition provider who can be relied upon to deliver professional education that meets global standards. We look to Achievers to provide students with choices as to the structure of courses, modern teaching methods and back it up with a student support system that will enhance pass rates."
Mrs Rajakarier also explained that as ACCA syllabi are based upon the International Financial Reporting Standards and the International Standards on Auditing, their members are in demand, recognized and understood by employers globally. This will help not only students who aspire to have globally mobile careers but will also provide the talent to fuel the growth of the developing BPO industry. She stated that ACCA students can combine professional and academic success without doubling the workload, as they can also obtain a BSc honours degree in Applied Accounting from Oxford Brookes University, UK on completion of the first nine papers, the professional ethics module and a research project .She said that Achievers will provide support for obtaining the degree by providing mentoring for the research project which means the student is fully supported in acquiring not just the professional qualification but the degree as well.
Mrs.Rajakaier concluded by saying" I look forward to working together with Achievers to grow ACCA in Sri Lanka for the benefit of our key stakeholders, namely, our students who want careers in finance and our employers who want people of skill and ability."
