who-we-are

who-we-are
       

RCA is different. It always has been. It was set up that way. We didn’t believe that lecturers had to be boring, in suits, be old and academic.

We believed in talent and a laid back approach.

An approach where the student feels welcome and supported, and the tutor free to concentrate on what they do best, in whatever manner suits them personally. We believe in people - and they need room to thrive. Forget old fashioned stuffiness, embrace a more human approach to studying. We believe in technology working for us - not against us.

We believe in innovation. We believe in the underdog.

These beliefs and approach allows us to focus and bring about success in our 3 goals:

1) The best Lecturers
2) The best Customer Service
3) The best Studying support

At RCA you are never just a number, you’re one of us and we try never to forget that.


       

  Who is this Richard Clarke idiot anyway…?

Richard has taught Accountancy exams all his working life pretty much (though there are acouple of auditing manager years at the very beginning in Shaftesbury Avenue, London that he remembers very fondly smile

He worked at BPP London as a full time tutor and quickly rose through the ranks to be their best rated tutor by students.

This led to him becoming the Director of Training, responsible for training all BPP tutors worldwide. He was also asked by ACCA to create a train the trainer course for all tutors worldwide alongside ACCA examiners, which he did for 3 years.

Then he became the International Director responsible for many of the international centers and for expanding further.

During this time he researched how adults learn (in respect of exams) and started applying it to his teaching and became widely known for these techniques. He also started as an ACCA and CIMA marker for 8 subjects!It soon became clear to him that he needed to start his own academies.

And so RCA Malta, Belfast & Aberdeen was born, in which Malta, in the shortest time possible, rose to become a Platinum rated ACCA centre. ACCA’s highest accolade and quite an achievement for one group of tutors with no support and starting from scratch.

During this time the Academy was seeing the online potential for its students. Not an “instead of” classroom but an “as well as”. Student support at its most flexible and RCA has recently raised the bar with the new Online Parallel now populated with more full course and revision lectures and RCA will continue to populate with further resources throughout 2015 with the introduction of a new CIMA learning platform to test students under the new 2015 Objective & Case Study assessments. This is free to all our students.

Innovation - RCA have consistently been at the forefront of innovation. From their classroom & online resources, to the new swanky website - you will never be left behind.
