SA office chooses ACCA
The Office of the Auditor-General in South Africa has chosen to train its students with ACCA.
The agreement between ACCA South Africa and the Office of the Auditor General involves an ACCA approved training scheme.
The Office of the Auditor General carries out audits in South Africa for international organisations such as the World Health Organisation and the United Nations.
Until now staff members without university degrees have often been unable to train for professional accountancy qualifications, said Jan van Schalkwyk, Centre Manager, Training Development in the Office of the Auditor-General.’We need individuals who hold international qualifications and who are able to speak the right language to financial professionals across the globe,’ he said.
