The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Greece (SOEL) and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) have partnered to offer their students the opportunity to qualify as members of both institutes.
SOEL and ICAEW agreed on signing a joint programme, called Accredited Membership Programme (AMP), which will allow their respective students to pursue the membership of either ICAEW or SOEL.
Both professional bodies said they will provide more details about this initiative on 21 November 2015, at the SOEL graduation ceremony.
ICAEW said its annual strategic forum will take place in Athens next year, as part of this co-operational effort with SOEL.
ICAEW Europe regional director Martin Manuzi said the AMP signalled the recognition of each other’s training and the ongoing close cooperation with SOEL and Greece’s oversight authority.
Earlier this month, SOEL and the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) signed a strategic partnership. Under the terms of such a partnership ACCA products and services including qualifications, certificates and diplomas will be offered jointly by the two organisations.
