As all tuition providers will know, all ACCA students are required to complete their exams, complete the practical experience requirement (PER) and take the Professional Ethics module in order to achieve ACCA membership.
It’s therefore very important that tuition providers are able to support students in all areas of the ACCA Qualification and not just in the exams.
Students can gain their practical experience before, during or after they complete their exams. PER provides a structure for them to follow by setting a range of performance objectives. The performance objectives ensure they gain the experience to demonstrate that they have the abilities required to become a member.
Completing the performance objectives will allow students to:
- apply in practice the knowledge and techniques gained through studies towards the ACCA exams
- observe and be involved in real-life work situations that help to develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours they will need as a qualified accountant
- develop their judgement, encouraging them to reflect on the quality of their work and how they may improve their work performance in the future.
The performance objectives are closely linked to the exam syllabus and we recommend that students co-ordinate their study and practical experience achievement to gain the most from both.
