Course programme

As a world-class professional accountancy body, the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) provides leadership and practical support to over 130,000 members in 160 countries, working with government, regulators and industry to maintain the highest standards.

The Associate the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ACA) Qualification is regarded globally as one of the leading business and finance qualifications, and is recognised and valued in practice, industry, commerce and the public sector.

The ACA Qualification comprises two stages, with 14 modules and a case study:

# The Professional Stage
# The Advanced Stage

Achieving the ACA also involves mandatory completion of a training contract lasting between 3 - 5 years, an online structured training in ethics (STE) and initial professional development (IPD)

The Professional Stage

(a) Knowledge modules (6 modules) which introduce the student to the core concepts underpinning accountancy.

(b) Application modules (6 modules) which demonstrate how the knowledge can be built on in practice.

The Advanced Stage

The Advanced Stage consists of two technical integration modules and a case study

(a) Technical integration - Business Reporting, which requires trainees to apply technical knowledge and professional judgment to business scenarios by taking a compliance approach.

(b) Technical integration - Business Change, which focuses on strategy, requiring trainees to demonstrate their planning skills and ability to give advice in a business context.

(c) Case Study - which tests the trainee's professional skills in the context of a specific business issue. It challenges the trainee on multiple areas of the syllabus. The examination combines information given to candidates beforehand and impact information given on the day.
