ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

To qualify as an ACCA member and to call yourself a qualified accountant you must complete practical experience. It’s important that you can take what you have learned in your exams and apply it in the work place. That is why we require all ACCA students to complete three years’ practical experience before they can become ACCA members. This is the time it takes for you apply and master the knowledge you’ve gained in the work place. It also gives employers the confidence that they are recruiting a complete finance professional.

In this section you will find the resources that you need to complete the practical experience requirements (PER) from identifying the right performance objectives and choosing a workplace mentor, through to submission and obtaining sign off.

We’ve also created a range of resources to help you find your feet in the employment market and make yourself attractive as a candidate to potential employers.
