New Training Programme for Public Sector Accountants
The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) have joint forces with PwC to introduce a new learning programme for public sector accountants.
The ICAEW IPSAS Certificate is an online learning programme to help accountants improve their understanding of the main developments in public sector accounting. There are no entry requirements needed for the programme, The self-study programme has 8 study modules and involves 30-40 study hours on average, over 12 months.
Patrice Schumesch, PwC global IPSAS partner, said:
‘An increasing number of governments and other public sector entities are implementing IPSAS as part of their wider public finance management reform. Training of staff is often a major challenge for them. Our programme helps them deliver consistent quality across the organisation and achieve their learning objectives.’
