About Us: TWP Academy history
We are really pleased with our sister company TWP Academy which we released in 2015. TWP Academy provides fully accredited bookkeeping and accounting courses, as well as some provider courses as Occupational Health and Safety and Project Management.
At Together We Pass we understand exactly what it looks to struggle through your distance learning course on your own. We have actually been helping home study trainees since 2008, so we really and truly understand. It became clear to us that students require both academic support too has assistance to stay motivated if they are going to complete their certification. Trainees can quickly feel isolated and helpless when they are trying to struggle through their course by themselves.
Due to these concerns Together We Pass chosen to release our own private home study college with a focus on business courses. The core beliefs are outstanding service, with a high contact design where trainees have easy access to their educators and fellow trainees daily. TWP Academy was introduced in 2015, and got it’s first accreditation in early 2016.
The certifications that TWP Academy provide are certified by the Institute of Certified Bookkeepers (ICB), which is a professional bookkeeping body. They are a Quality Assurance Partner to both FASSET and QCTO, which implies that they are given authority by these government organizations to certify private providers.
TWP Academy now provides a variety of fully accredited bookkeeping, financial management along with entrepreneurial qualifications that will permit you to jumpstart your profession in a positive way.
TWP Academy caters for students that wish to study high quality, certified bookkeeping and accounting certifications, but who may not satisfy the entry requirements of UNISA and other organizations of higher learning. Many of the ICB qualifications only take a grade 10 to apply, and therefore this gives access to education to students who may otherwise be omitted.
We likewise believe they are suitable for students that were accepted by UNISA, but are unable to pass the degree level subjects in Accounting. Around 95% of UNISA students fail the very first year accounting examinations, so our company believe there is a real need for an alternative for these students.
Just like any home study courses our qualifications are ideal for people that are working and wish to keen earning and gaining experience as they study towards their qualifications. This makes it inexpensive, especially with the month-to-month payment structures provided by TWP Academy.
