Course Tutor: Alan Lewin
Alan qualified as a chartered accountant in 1982 with Touche Ross (now Deloitte) in Leicester. However, Alan left accountancy practice in 1985 to start a career in lecturing and then consultancy. He initially worked for Chart Tutors (now Kaplan) running one of their examination centres, then moved back to Deloitte’s audit training department and then in 1996 established his own training company.
Alan now specialises in writing and teaching the subjects of auditing, corporate governance, business strategy and finance and case studies. His clients include Kaplan and BPP as well as other tuition and publishing companies. He also has examination experience with CIMA where he was chief examiner for 10 years and more recently ACCA where he was Audit and Assurance examiner for 5 years.
Strategic Business Management
Course Objective and Approach
The course is planned as tuition and revision to prepare you for success in the Strategic Business Management exam. This is our key objective. We assume that you have done some preparatory work prior to the commencement of the course and that we can build on this through the duration of the course.
The course will consist of 3 phases – a lecture-based taught phase (4 sessions), a recorded phase (6 sessions) and a revision phase (10 sessions).
Lectures will follow the content of ICAEW study manual and will include extensive practice on questions from the ICAEW Question Bank.
You will be given Mock Exam 1 (ME 1) towards the end of the Taught Phase.
You will be given Mock Exam 2 (ME 2) towards the end of the Revision Phase.
City Academy’s tutors will mark and review your ME scripts so as to benefit your learning outcome. You will have the flexibility of practising the ME at your own time at home but you must submit your ME answer scripts by the due date set. You may also be given homework, assignments or additional reading materials.
The course is interactive and you will be encouraged to participate in class discussions.
“Completeness” is a key audit assertion. To meet the key course objective of exam success you need to be complete in your exam preparation. The course is aimed at exposure/coverage to/of most significant exam matters, and focuses on how these matters will be examined and prepares you with question practise and tips in answering this ICAEW paper. You will be expected to attend all lectures and any supplementary tutorials, complete all course assignments and sit for and submit all ME answers.
