ICAEW teams up with PwC for public sector IPSAS programme

PWC has collaborated with ICAEW on a new e-learning programme for public sector accountants, to help them with the implementation process.

The programme is relevant to those expected to use, prepare or interpret IPSAS financial statements, including anyone not connected with the ICAEW.

Accountants will be able to complete the course online in their own time, and upon completion of the programme, will be presented with an IPSAS certificate.

The programme follows a hands-on-approach from principles to practice, with technical guidance, practical examples, practice questions and revision aids.

Ross Campbell, ICAEW public sector director said the aim  was to “help public sector accountants deliver as effectively as possible”.

“There are no entry requirements, and the programme is easily accessible to those who need it.

“Moreover, the flexible, interactive online learning can be fitted around existing commitments, and the online assessment offers immediate results.”
