How to become an ABE learner

There are two simple steps to studying for an ABE qualification:

Step 1: Decide which qualification you wish to study.
If you are undecided Business Management is a good place to start because you get an all-round grounding in business and with ABE you can easily opt to add in a particular discipline at a later stage.  Click here to find out more about our qualifications.

Step 2: Choose a centre (or college) and enrol on their next ABE course. Click here to find a study centre near you.


We strongly recommend learners work with an accredited centre.  Most centres will support people who wish to work at their own pace and offer flexible arrangements which will fit around other commitments. Plus you will have the support of an experienced and qualified ABE tutor and this will give you the greatest chance of working successfully through your assessments.

If your circumstances or location make it impossible to access an accredited centre, you can self-study using ABE study resources.   Register, pay your membership and book all your assessments direct here via our secure online portal hosted by WU GlobalPay (please do not use if you are in Malawi or Sri Lanka - instead go to your country page for local information).

Private learners are emailed with details about how to submit assessments directly.
