OnDemand for AAT is a brand new online study method, which gives you all the support and structure of a tutor-led course with the flexibility to study wherever and whenever you want.
When it came to designing the course, we wanted to make sure that it provided our students with everything they need, so we asked AAT students what they wanted from a course in order to succeed.
Take a look at some of the responses below to show how OnDemand was built with you in mind.
"I want to know there’s someone to speak to when I need them - not waste time waiting for a response"
When you’re working to your own busy schedule, you don’t want to have to put your studies on hold waiting for your tutor to respond. That’s why we’re keeping our tutor support team open longer than any other provider - 7 days a week.
You can get an instant response from a qualified Kaplan tutor through live chat, arrange a phone call at a convenient time or email them your questions - even on evenings and weekends. You are guaranteed a response by email or requesting a callback in 4 hours or less and support is available until 8pm on weekdays - perfect if you have work or family commitments.
"I want a subject expert to motivate me and give me feedback"
In order to get the most out of your course, you need full confidence in your tutor. Kaplan tutors are subject specialists, and OnDemand gives you full access to their expertise. Our tutors will be there to guide you through the whole syllabus, so you know exactly what you need to complete and when - just like in a classroom.
When you take a mock exam, you’ll get immediate, personalised feedback so you can focus in more detail on the areas you need to improve on.
It can be difficult to stay motivated when studying on your own, so if you get stuck or fall behind where you want to be, we’ll even contact you to see how we can help get you back on track.
"I want flexibility, but to know there’s still structure to keep me motivated."
OnDemand allows you to study the way you want and complements the ‘on-demand’ nature of many of the AAT exams, which can be taken any time. You can start the course 365 days a year, meaning waiting for course start dates or finding your way into a classroom becomes a thing of the past. You can work through the syllabus at your own pace, and all the content is accessible on a range of devices - allowing you to study on the go.
Some students told us that they find it difficult to keep on track with no fixed dates, which is why Kaplan OnDemand also provides structure to help you maintain progress and go into the exam feeling confident.
- Your tutor will introduce and explain each unit with a recorded video. Together with a thorough course programme, you’ll have a suggested order in which to complete your course.
- You’ll have an integrated workbook which mirrors the tutor-led online content, allowing you to keep all your course notes in one place and track your progress.
- At the end of each unit, you’ll complete an assessment - these will gradually build on what you learn to fully prepare you for the exams.
"I want high quality content that makes it easier to learn"
Students told us that the quality of learning resources was the most important factor for them in choosing a flexible course. We believe that just because you decide to study remotely doesn’t mean you should compromise on quality. With Kaplan OnDemand you’ll benefit from:
- A wide range of high quality and engaging online content, all designed specifically for the OnDemand course. Created by our expert tutors, a mixture of tutor-led videos, worked examples and interactive tests will help guide you through every part of the syllabus.
- Specifically designed online resources that teach you in an efficient way and are accessible on a range of devices.
- Printed study materials to accompany your online learning.
"I want lots of question practice, but in a format that’s like the actual exams."
Practice questions are an important part of learning. But rather than just focusing on the total volume of questions, Kaplan OnDemand assessments are designed in a way that will help you better prepare for the exams. Knowledge Checks and Progress Tests ensure you’re aware of areas you still need to work on plus you can build your own tests from a bank of hundreds of questions, so you can focus on the areas you feel you need to practice most. The final 2 mock exams even look and feel like the real exams to maximise your confidence.
Here’s what some students have said about OnDemand:
“OnDemand allows me to learn at my own pace and at a time to suit me, but still have support available. I have young children and work part-time so learning has to fit in around them”
“It gives me the support and resources I feel are helpful and important for passing exams”
“The instant feedback provided on the mock exams are a massive help to see where there is room for improvement”
