We recognise that some employers provide excellent learning and development programmes for their employees.

If you work for an organisation which is an ACCA Approved Employer - professional development, you may achieve your CPD by participating in your organisation's employee development programme and you are not required to complete any additional CPD. You must, however, complete an annual CPD declaration to ACCA stating that you have followed this route.

If you have worked for an ACCA Approved Employer - professional development for all or any part of a CPD year, you can indicate that you have taken the employer route when you make your annual CPD declaration.

It is your responsibility to confirm with your employer that they are an ACCA Approved Employer - professional development and that you or your team are covered by the approval. We maintain a list of all employers who have gained approval under the professional development stream.
