The ACA qualification is from the ICAEW (Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales). ICAEW Chartered Accountants are always in demand and the ACA Qualification equips students to perform at the highest levels of accountancy, business and finance.

The majority of ACA trainees work in accounting practice and the qualification has a strong practice subject focus (audit, taxation) as well as covering other key technical accounting areas. An increasing number of students are now training in other sectors too.Once qualified, ICAEW Chartered Accountants work in all sectors, from accounting practices to commercial organisations, financial institutions, not for profit organisations and the public sector.

We offer tuition for the ACA Qualification at our Newport and Cardiff campuses. We offer a flexible portfolio of ACA courses that appeal to large or small training organisations (day release and block delivery) and we are an ICAEW Partner in Learning (City Campus Newport; Cardiff Campus application pending).

See the website http://courses.southwales.ac.uk/courses/1224-institute-of-chartered-accountants-in-england-and-wales-icaew

What you will study

To qualify as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant students are required to complete:
• 15 examinations
• 450 days of technical work experience, which you gain by obtaining a training contract with an appropriate employer
• Professional development (delivered through ICAEW or your employer)
• Ethics and professional scepticism programme (delivered through ICAEW)

The ACA Qualification comprises three examination levels: Certificate, Professional and Advanced. A Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business (ICAEW CFAB) qualification is available upon completion of the Certificate Level, which is an excellent qualification in its own right for non-financial managers.

At the Advanced Level students are required to study a number of technical areas, which are then examined together in the Corporate Reporting and Strategic Business Management papers. These papers aim to simulate real-life business and accounting practice environments, and the concept is taken further with a final case study examination.
