Through the partnership, ISCA and AAT will be instrumental in further developing the accounting profession in Singapore.
The initiative supports the government’s SkillsFuture programme, offering Singaporeans the opportunities to fulfil their potential, whatever their starting point in life. The partnership provides practical entry level qualifications to equip individuals with the skills they need to access the industry and excel in a large range of finance roles.
By increasing the numbers of accounting technicians in Singapore, the demands of employers for reliable, competent finance staff to support senior levels of the profession will be met.
In addition, this fast track route to chartered accountancy offers exemptions and a seamless transition for those who want to progress their career from technician level to qualified chartered accountant.
As members of IFAC, ISCA and AAT are both committed to developing and growing the accountancy profession. This includes establishing professional membership within Singapore to support and regulate accounting technicians, ensuring professional standards and codes of ethics are followed.
