Text Book List for 2021

Learning Partnerships has an extensive library of resources that are used by students across qualifications and presentation slide decks for all qualifications.

Due to changes in qualifications in the Business Services Package V7.0 and our articulation agreements with universities in 2021 we have moved towards more university-style resources with some qualifications, particularly in the higher levels requiring textbooks.

Text books are in addition to the qualification cost which you can purchase independently.

Textbooks are indicated as Primary and Supplementary. Primary Textbooks are highly recommended and you may find without the textbook you may struggle to complete the course work. These books may also be available at Amazon or other online book stores as hard copies and ebooks. We encourage you to also search for current deals or second-hand options.
