Majority of Scots ICA accountants to be trained in England following big firm exodus

The Scots ICA will train more students in England and Wales than it will north of the border from September, according to the institute's annual report.

Writing in the annual report, published this week, president Charles Monaghan described the decision by Ernst & Young and PricewaterhouseCoopers to switch more new students to the Scottish institute from the English ICA as ‘very gratifying’.

KPMG, where English ICA president Dame Sheila Masters is a partner, is also encouraging students to take the Scottish route.

Speaking after publication of the report, new ICAS chief executive David Brew: ‘In September 2000 we expect the Institute’s graduate intake to rise to around 1000 students, some 600 of whom will be based throughout England and Wales.’
