PACA Adult Learning, home to top adult teaching talent

Voted for by students, the AAT Awards recognise accountancy teachers from across the country and PACA Adult Learning tutor Paul Robbins was listed in this year’s final four. His second award nomination this year, it made him the first person ever to be shortlisted for both this and a PQ Magazine Award in the same year.

There are over 84,000 current AAT students across more than 500 AAT approved training providers worldwide*. PACA Adult Learning has been offering accountancy qualifications since 2014 and Chartered Public Finance Accountant Paul Robbins has been teaching the courses for ten years overall.

Paul Robbins said “I worked in a range of accounting roles over 11 years and then obtained the Cert.Ed. in Post Compulsory Education at the University of Brighton in 2012. I thoroughly enjoy teaching people accountancy and trying to make it fun, dispelling the dull reputation the profession often has.”

The Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) Tutor of the Year award is voted for by AAT students so it made it an extra special nomination for Paul. The much-loved lecturer was also shortlisted for the PQ Magazine ‘Lecturer of the Year (Public Sector)’ award this year, the first person to be highlighted within both awards programs since the AAT Awards were launched.

Vice Principal of PACA Adult Learning, Nick Fenn, said “Paul’s dedication and commitment to his learners is exceptional and this is reflected in the fabulous results his students get and the wonderful feedback they give us about him. This nomination was richly deserved and Paul should be very proud!”

As well as Paul, we are lucky to have other top teaching talent at PACA Adult Learning which resulted in an overall pass rate of 94.9% last year. Our students also tell us that our teachers are great, with 93.3% starting that the quality of the teaching they received is either good or outstanding. This feedback is a real testament to the wonderful support and dedication all our tutors give our students.
