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

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.’
