ICAEW and PwC launch new public sector accounting learning programme

Press release by ICAEW – ICAEW and PwC have launched their IPSAS Certificate, which provides a high quality, flexible and accessible certified learning programme for public sector accountants.

The ICAEW IPSAS Certificate, jointly developed in collaboration with PwC, provides accountants with a content-rich e-learning certified programme for all stages of the implementation process and beyond. The programme, now live, is open to anyone who works in the sector and wants to enhance their skills.

Ross Campbell, ICAEW Public Sector Director said: "The aim of the programme is to help public sector accountants manage finances 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."

The programme follows a hands-on-approach, from principles to practice, with technical guidance, practical examples, practice questions and revision aids. On successful completion of the assessment, the participant will receive a certificate which will indicate either a pass or a distinction depending on the score.

Patrice Schumesch, PwC Global IPSAS Partner, said: "An increasing number of governments and other public sector entities are implementing IPSAS as part of their wider public finance management reform. Training of staff is often a major challenge for them. Our programme helps them deliver consistent quality across the organisation and achieve their learning objectives."
