Steve Chen (Founder)’s story

I founded APC in 2012 after qualifying myself in ACCA accreditation ten years ago. I like many people was spending over 13 hours everyday reading study texts and completing questions, then making lots of summaries, which I read and reread. I must admit, as is no surprise, this method is time consuming, tiring and not efficient at all.

So, I made it my mission to develop an alternative way for students to learn that was more less time-consuming, more efficient, productive and less stressful. It was a new way that was to challenge the old way.

This was the point that I set up the global consultancy company – APC. As a company, all we do is provide ACCA online courses to students across the globe. Our specialisation in this way allows us to focus on what matters, which is helping our students get the result they need. As we only focus on one course, we consider ourselves experts as every year, we use feedback and developments in teaching techniques to improve our offer.

My vision was to create a company that avoided the common large supermarket chain style of training courses business, where you can do a course in any subject by tutors who often haven’t actually done course itself, like our tutors have.

One aspect that I am proud to have introduced to all our training is the use of mnemonics, and the targeted use of smart systems for improving and assisting the memory related to learning.

One mnemonic system, I developed when a student; called COPAR, was accepted and used as aa new standard by other tuition providers and even the CIMA F2 Kaplan Study text itself.

At APC, we are constantly looking at ways to support our students to study smarter, more intelligently and efficiently. The price quoted for our courses may be slightly higher than courses from other tuition providers, but I believe my course can help you pass ACCA exams, especially for those who have struggled to pass in the P level studies.
