Woman raising hand


As the profession faces a number of challenges and uncertainties, our CPD programme will offer you and your colleagues’ peace of mind that your CPD needs and requirements are being fulfilled for the year ahead.

Our courses are delivered by expert speakers from the national CPD lecture circuit on a wide variety of topics. These include popular half yearly technical updates in accounting and tax, as well as more specialist areas of training such as IT, management skills and much more. Our programme is available both face to face and live online using Zoom. Excel courses are offered as recorded online courses, meaning you can watch, pause and practice before moving on to the next section. Access is given for 1 month, allowing plenty of time to watch the course, and to revisit sections more than once.

Government guidance permitting, we will also run two residential conferences (Taxation and Insolvency), and two one day seminars for Insolvency Practitioners. 

SESCA Live Online Courses

Our live online CPD courses are available for anyone to attend from the comfort of their laptop/PC. The courses are run using Zoom. Just like face to face, you can ask questions during the course and the SESCA admin team will be online to try to answer any IT issues you may be experiencing with Zoom. Each course is available to be booked either individually or using a Flexiticket. Delegates are emailed the course notes in pdf form and the Zoom link two days before the course date. You may request a hard copy of the notes to be sent to you after the course – simply email with your request and address details.

Live Online Course Advantages: The courses are designed to be as close to being in the room as possible without the need to travel to a venue, saving you travel time and cost. Delegates are able to ask questions during the course using the chat box and receive the same expert training from speakers.

Very easy to attend on Zoom.
I find the Zoom courses really good as you can learn from your desk and it saves the travel time.
It gives you access to courses that may not be running in your area.
I had some reservations as to whether Zoom would work for this type of course and I was pleasantly surprised.

SESCA Recorded Online Excel Courses

All our Excel courses are now available as recorded online courses, available at any time of the year. Contact us at to book your one month access. Each online recording is accompanied by a full set of notes (80+ pages) and example Excel workbooks so that you can work through the content at your own pace. Delegates are emailed the course notes and weblink with one month access code.

Recorded Online Course Advantages: The courses are designed to replace 3 hour face-to-face lectures but each one is divided into a series of chapters of about 20 minutes so you can do as much or as little as you want over a period of one month. Rather than just replacing the face-to-face experience, presenting these courses online allows us to make them even more convenient, accessible and useful.

This as a recorded session was ideal as it would allow me to pause and apply techniques straightaway to my files, it also allowed me to rewind to go over things for a better understanding. I would definitely do this form of training again.
I thought this was a great course – it touched on some really good points and the more detailed guides to go with it mean that I can go back and test/play around with the functionality in my own time which is really useful. I would definitely recommend this course to others.
