SBL IS HERE

Strategic Business Leader – are you ready?

It’s finally here. Strategic Business Leader (SBL) the replacement for P1 and P3 makes its debut in the September exam sitting. SBL is the culmination of a process in which ACCA identified the skills and capabilities required to work in a rapidly changing working environment. This new exam is a professional qualification that allows students to demonstrate a range of practical leadership competences and reflects a syllabus containing all the key technical, professional and leadership skills that employers are seeking from their best candidates.

The good news is you now do one less exam.
That is good news! However, SBL is a four hour exam with a huge syllabus plus a lot of assumed knowledge from the Fundamental papers. The key here is to know what to concentrate on as you navigate the syllabus. More importantly there is a totally different style of exam for SBL.
What has worked for you in the past may not work for SBL. Beyond the content, the ACCA wants to test your professional skills such as scepticism and business acumen.

You need to know how to score the ‘quick and easy’ marks.
At City Colleges, our SBL tutor, Owen O’Reilly is well-versed in guiding students to success, with more than 10 years experience of teaching P1 & P3.

In the last eight sittings of P3 (up to March 2018) half of all ‘First in Ireland’ students were from City Colleges, including a first and fourth in the world in the last two sittings.

Owen has completed a range of training on the new syllabus with the ACCA and was involved in the development of the programme. His preparation has included putting himself in the shoes of the students by completing mock exams. He has also been trained in marking mock SBL exams and has participated in marking seminars to get a better understanding of how to approach this new syllabus.

Strategic Business Leader classes commence in City Colleges on 19 June 2018 – book now to secure your place.

Testimonials

“Martin Corboy is the most brilliant lecturer I have ever met.” Viktorija Balandina

“I think by far they have the best lecturers, very exam focused.” – Michelle Cleary

“I would definitely recommend City Colleges for ACCA. The exam technique provided allowed me to approach the exam answers effectively and efficiently.” – Kamila Wawrzyniak Conboy

“Availability of online facility means I don’t miss classes when I travel with work” – Ciaran Moloney

“Great lecturers, great facilities and helpful staff.” – Emma Coffey

“I find online lectures extremely useful if I am unable to attend class because of work and also as a study aid” – Carol Byrne

“I have passed P1 and P3 thanks to Owen’s fabulous lectures. I passed both and am delighted and I honestly believe a lot of the credit is yours and is a lot to do with the way you teach the subjects. Your lectures are very informative, you give great exam tips (USA, PEA), making the subjects relevant and interesting. Your hand-outs are superb, you draw attention to the relevant articles and focus on past exam questions and things to be aware of that may crop up again. I went into both papers prepared and knowing the style of answer required and how to score the marks, this was thanks to your advice. I would highly recommend your classes, even to people who can’t physically attend them. Your recordings are focused on those at home as well in the class and I really appreciated this.” – Michelle Baird, ACCA P1 & P3 with Owen O’Reilly
