Growing interest in CIPFA's fast track

Newly qualified accountancy students are starting to enquire about becoming dual qualified with public-sector accountancy body CIPFA.

Managers at the body have revealed a better-than-expected response to the launch of its new fast-track conversion course and that a rash of enquiries has been received from newly qualified ACCA students seeking information about taking starting the CIPFA course this year.

CIPFA is hoping to exceed its target for people taking the fast track after receiving more than 200 enquiries in the first six weeks after the launch.

Quentin Langley, head of communications at CIPFA’s Education and Training Directorate, said: ‘We set a target of having 50 to 100 people taking the first course.

‘We have now had 200 enquiries. Obviously not all of those are going to take the course but we are hoping we might exceed out targets now.’

The fast-track programme was launched at CIPFA’s conference in June.
