PEARL, our unique learning platform
PEARL is the most advanced, cutting edge, online learning platform. It offers a
choice of views, you can choose to study in a social environment, where you
can see what other people have to say and make comments yourself, join in
the debate and contact other learners on your course. You can choose to
enrich your learning by adding other ‘employability skills’, which can lead to
further qualifications, and you can even build your CV, and opt to take a
psychometric test on PEARL with options to display your progress and results
and study badges won in your ‘Employer’ or ‘Personal’ profiles.
End of unit mock tests and the examination services team
To help you make sure that you have thoroughly learned every unit, you will
have access to mock tests on PEARL. These provide an invaluable guide, they
tell you, and us, how prepared you are for the test itself. There are four
"Computer Based Tests" and one "Computer Based Project", and an end of
course 'Synoptic' Exam. All the tests, except for the "Computer Based Project"
need to be taken at an AAT test centre and usually cannot be taken more than
twice. So it's important to make absolutely sure you are completely ready for
each test, and aim to get it right first time, you can then reserve your right to
re-sit a unit test just to improve your grade, eg. to go from a 'Merit' to a
'Distinction'. Our examination services team will help you schedule your test.
Industry expert assessors
There is also Industry expert help available via phone, email and online to
support you, if any part of the syllabus needs further clarification.
Further support from our learning community
PEARL is a uniquely social environment, where learners can not only study at
home, or anywhere with Wifi, but also interact with the people learning their
course, or working on the same unit. The wider learning community can further
support and enrich your learning experience with relevant comments and by
posting, and sharing, helpful links.
