About Illuminate learn

Illuminate learn is your own personal online portal offering a wide variety of training packages designed to support you as you prepare for exams and further your personal development. All courses are created by subject matter experts, regularly updated and competitively priced. With expert tutors online to answer your questions, modular learning and timed knowledge tests, learning need never be the same again.


Current courses include the diploma suite R01, R02, R03, R04, R05 and R06 from Redmill Advance and business management from FP Advance. AF1, AF3 and AF4 are coming in February and AF5 will be available in time for the April exam. More courses will soon be available from the Behavior Gap and Technical Connection.  We'll regularly add new material from a wide range of different providers.

Structured learning

Structured courses break the information down into manageable chunks giving you the flexibility to study at your own pace and in your own time. The portal can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, which means you can revisit your course any time.


We all learn in different ways. Illuminate learn gives you a choice of learning materials from e-books to video tutorials to webinars (coming soon). Simply choose the one that suits you best then tailor the dashboard so you only see the courses  you're interested in.

Market leading support

All learning material is created and reviewed by subject knowledge experts with years of industry experience. Each piece is kept up-to-date to reflect changes to the exam syllabus and tax year. We'll also make sure that all courses are competitively priced.

Save time

Our providers have condensed the content so you only read the key information you need. Courses now contain half the number of hours of material, making learning much more efficient. They've also deleted the unnecessary jargon - hooray.

Tutor support

We won’t leave you to battle your studies alone. Expert qualified tutors are on hand to answer queries, give feedback and help you work through the answers to any failed test questions. There's also a bank of 6,000 timed exam questions to test your knowledge on.
