• Student Complaints Procedure
Richard Clarke Academy (RCA) strives to achieve the best possible experience for its students, but we understand that there may be times when a student is dissatisfied with some aspect of what we have delivered or wishes to raise an issue they may have with a fellow student.
• Informal Complaints
In most instances, the issue can be resolved simply by discussing it with the person/s involved, or raising the matter with a relevant tutor or the RCA centre manager.
• Formal Complaints
If the matter is not successfully resolved via informal means, or the issue is of a serious nature, a formal complaint should be made in writing as soon as is reasonably possible. It is much more likely that the matter will be resolved satisfactorily if it is raised at an early stage.
Written complaints should state clearly the nature and origin of the issue/s, detail what steps have been taken to resolve it informally and (if applicable) explain why the outcome of the informal procedure is not considered satisfactory. Complaints should usually be submitted to an appropriate RCA employee so that they may then be assigned to a member of the management team for review.
The manager will contact the complainant to outline the steps they intend to take and to give an indication of the date by which they anticipate being able to conclude their investigation and issue their response.
Once a decision has been made, the complainant will receive a written outcome which sets out details of the findings and, if the complaint is upheld, indicates what action will be taken.
When a student raises a complaint in good faith, RCA will take reasonable steps to ensure that by invoking the complaint procedures the student is not subjected to less favorable treatment. However, if a student is found to have raised a complaint dishonestly or maliciously, the matter may be addressed through the Student Disciplinary Procedure.
“I was close to throwing the towel in before joining RCA, would have been a huge mistake but with the support of the staff I managed to get there in the end so thank you so much" Now CIMA qualified
RCA is a great academy to study for your professional accounting exams, as an ACCA student I can say that all staff to the lecturers are fantastic and always there to help, always replying quickly.
The experience with RCA tuition was simply amazing! Richard Clarke lectures were fun and easy to follow. Accountancy made simple indeed!
"The tuition is excellent - I have already referred a friend who I studied with in University of Ulster"
I must say that the CIMA Strategy mock exam that Aaron, John and Paddy set and the mock review class really helped prepare me for this exam, it is probably what helped me pass.
Thanks to RCA again, contacted by ACCA this week and my P1 result was 3rd in Ireland and 13th in World. I made it clear to ACCA that this was down to RCA and Patrick Barr in particular.
I'm really happy with the RCA service. I feel very comfortable coming for the lectures. Staff are brilliant, very helpful. Your ACCA knowledge is superb. Its like I am speaking to old friends
Just to say that Aaron was an unbelievable teacher, the best financial accounting one that I've ever had. so glad that I'm studying with the Richard Clarke Academy Belfast
Thanks to everyone at RCA especially CIMA P1 tutor Simone,she was excellent both in class and help with questions outside class, I would not have passed had it not been for her teaching methods
I would like to thank you and RCA Belfast for all your help and guidance during all the exams. It has added great value and learning which helped me in passing all the exams in first attempt.

Studying at RCA, showed there's a fun way to learn not only for exam day but for my future. A new learning experience to ease the pressure of studying. Big thanks to all the crew at RCA.

I started with RCA in December 2010, a completely different and creative way of tutoring that help me achieve my goals
I want to thank the whole team from RCA Belfast. I think your way of teaching is brilliant and I enjoyed all CIMA classes. Done all pro papers and didn’t fail one. RCA is just a different level.

I tried BPP but RCA were far better in every respect - I have nothing but good words to say about them - and would recommend them to everyone taking ACCA
Great course notes and friendly lecturers who are always very helpful
P2 course with Richard added real value into my journey towards ACCA. Unforgettable experience and really nice time, quality teaching and complete success in the exam!
Thank God for RCA Belfast. I wanted to tell you that these lecturers and materials are so so much better than Kaplan! The P2 tutor is amazing. I am doing my last 2 ACCA exams with you guys for sure.
With RCA I have progressed on a personal and professional basis. RCA's lecturers explain the material and weave into everyday practical examples. Making this learning experience all worthwhile!
I never failed an exam with you!!! You are going to miss me in class :p Thank you so much for everything !!!! ACCA Qualified

I want to show my appreciation and gratitude to Richard for being a great lecturer. He's always positive, very helpful and make things simple to understand. Failure is not an option with Richard!
Thank u very much for your help and patience through P3 & 7. If it wasn't your support and help I wouldn't have made it. Once again thanks to you, Michelle and all your team @ RCA that I made it
Completely different approach to tuition, factoring in that most students are adult students. RCA lecturers have been there done that, which I think Is both unique but fundamental at the same time."
"Great tutors, great notes can email tutors at any time, and they care that you pass first time!"
Aaron is by far the best lecturer I have ever had, the way he taught P2 and P7 was fantastic, made it fun. Paddy was great for P3 and made P3 interesting (something I thought I would never say)
P3 passed 1st attempt! You were spot on, exam technique/approach is important as much as the knowledge! and F9 you were right, it was all about time management! CU at the next course sessions!
No more F9... Cu for P2 ) Thx to ur gr8 teaching that we pass
