If your employer is a gold or platinum ACCA Approved Employer - trainee development stream, you may be exempt from achieving the Performance Objectives. You will still be required to complete 36 months’ experience and record this in My Experience. This is because we recognise that your employer already has a robust training and development programme in place which will equip you with the required competence. It is important to confirm that your employer has gold or platinum level approval and it is up to the employer if they want to allow you to claim the Performance Objectives exemption.
ACCA recommends that you regularly update your My Experience record. One of the difficulties trainees often experience when they come to apply for membership is that they find they are missing vital information, such as employer details, or they have failed to gain sign-off for performance objectives achieved with a previous employer. A reminder pop-up screen will appear when you log into myACCA if you have not recently engaged with My Experience, as a reminder to update you experience details.
