2. Tuition Phase
This comprises 4 contact weekend sessions (7hrs * 4 = 28 hours). During this phase, we use the 3 case studies reviewed during the pre-reading phase to teach the full SBL syllabus at a very high level as required to succeed at the final exam. The 3 case studies combined, have been written to be of immediate relevance in teaching the 9 core SBL examinable competencies: leadership; governance; strategy; risk; technology and data analytics; organisational control and audit; finance in planning and decision-making; innovation, performance, excellence and change management).
3. Exam Preparation (Revision) Phase
This phase also comprises of 4 contact weekend sessions (28 hours) coupled with a number of non-contact sessions directed by CharterQuest. It starts with a Progress Test, designed to assess your integrative, broad and high-level understanding of the 9 core SBL examinable competencies, whilst introducing the ACCA’s SBL marking grid (technical versus professional skills)
The focus of this phase is to build your exam techniques by attempting a series of mock exams -and debriefing the model answers, with a determined focus on the marking grid. We delve deeper into how to earn technical marks versus professional marks, how to build an answer, and sharing with you insights from several webinars held with the chief examiners of the new SBL module in relation to how marks are earned and allocated.
This phase ends with a final mock exam, a 4-hour exam standard exam which you write under exam conditions, and it is marked and debriefed in our final contact session.
The course cannot be unbundled - you should take the full course to attend all 3 phases.
