The benefits of learning tax online
Over the last few months, we have all had to respond to different changes and adapt to new ways of doing things. Learning is no exception. If you've always been used to learning in a classroom, you might be anxious or wary about learning and studying online, but there are many benefits. Here are some of them.
When you study online – you are more likely to be in charge of your own schedule
Learning online usually means you are more in control of how, where and when you learn. You can work through modules at your own pace and devote extra time to the topics that are unfamiliar to you or are particularly important for your practice. You can choose to learn in an environment that is most comfortable and at a time that is most convenient for you – this is especially important when we have so many other demands on our time.
What's more, online study can help improve your self-discipline, your self-motivation and your ability to stay focused and manage your time effectively.
These are all valuable skills that are transferable to many other areas of your life, as well as your life as a tax professional. New challenges undoubtedly affect everyone but developing these skills can build your resilience to respond better to the challenges you face.
The impact of the COVID-19 on The Tax Institute’s education programs
We have adapted to changing circumstances and found new ways to deliver our comprehensive tax courses online. In particular, we have responded by:
- Offering live online Q&A sessions with subject matter experts
- Delivering our face-to-face lectures online. From Study Period 2 these will be restructured and available as online facilitated learning and Q&A sessions with more facilitator contact time
- Switching to online exams and assessments conducted remotely at a place that suits you
We know how important it is to keep working towards your learning and career goals and we are here to support you.
Continuing with your development is your opportunity to demonstrate how adaptable and resilient you can be, and these key qualities will stand you in good stead as a tax specialist.
