Following on from the launch of our Mercia Live programme (just two days after social distancing restrictions were announced), we have now almost 400 virtual classrooms planned, with over 10,000 delegates expected. Just eight weeks ago Mercia Live didn’t yet exist, and we are proud to be able to offer a brand-new training option in lieu of our face to face training courses during the lock down period and beyond. At this challenging time, the economy and UK businesses need accountants more than ever. Mercia Live ensures you can remain up to date with the latest government announcements, topical issues and changes in legislation.

Our Mercia Live programme includes a range of courses throughout May, June and July. With geographical boundaries no longer applying, with our Mercia Live courses, you can attend any course in the programme. For members who attend face to face courses, Mercia Live is included as part of your membership and are also available to purchase on a pay as you go basis. Our full virtual classroom programme can be found here.

Now to the future, the only constant in our lives is change. Responding to this change and following the positive feedback received about Mercia Live, we’re pleased to announce we will be adding Mercia Live to our 2021 training programme. Complementing our usual programme of face to face and other online options, the addition of Mercia Live creates enhanced choice and greater flexibility. We would love to hear your thoughts on what you would like to see in our Mercia Live programme. You can share these by emailing us at

“I thought the format of doing the course via Zoom worked very well - I think the fact you can see the speakers slides/webcams as they spoke was really good, I almost preferred this style of course to a face to face one! Thank you very much - very informative and useful”
