The International Education Standards (IES) contain the underlying principles, concepts and definitions that enhance accountancy education. The IES address the entry requirements, the learning outcomes of professional accounting education programs, the continuing professional development requirements of professional accountants as well as the professional competence requirements for engagement partners.
The IFAC has introduced a new IFAC Accountancy Education E-tool which helps accountancy education stakeholders navigate and access key principles and related implementation support. The instructional video on how to use the e-tool can be found here.
Being the national accountancy body, ISCA takes a keen interest in the education and professional development of aspiring and professional accountants in Singapore. With the support and inputs from ISCA members and oversight committee members, ISCA Professional Development & Learning Division would seek views and comment on international educational pronouncements and proposals for relevance to the profession in Singapore.
