English ICA awards outstanding students

The English ICA has honoured 120 trainees chartered accountants who excelled in this year's examinations.

An award ceremony was held at the Chartered Accountants’ Hall in London this week where the winners were presented with gold medals and silverware for their excellent performance in the technical core stages of their studies and the final admitting examination.

Trainee Joel Hope-Bell won the top accolade, the Worshipful Company of Chartered Accountants prize for the best performance throughout the exams. Hope-Bell trained with Big Five firm Arthur Andersen in Bristol.

Professor Brian Chiplin, the institute’s executive director of education and training, said: ‘I am delighted by the standard of achievement of this year’s winners. The exams set by the institute are amongst the toughest in the professional world. The consistently high calibre of our trainees is a reflection of the profession’s appeal to the very best graduates.’

The English institute is hoping that the introduction in the autumn of its revamped CA qualification will boost the number of students. Europe’s largest accountancy body has recently lost several hundred trainees to the Scots ICA.
