ACCA - The global body for professional accountants

To demonstrate how the skills of an ACCA qualified accountant can help grow your business, we have worked with leading employers to develop a competency framework that makes it easy to compare key business areas against ACCA syllabus coverage.

The ACCA Competency Framework will enable employers and workplace mentors to see all ten of the main competencies which are learned through the ACCA Qualification and how they relate to the requirements of different jobs. The flexible search criteria include sector, job profile, behaviour and more.

How will it help me?

  • HR management - it provides easy access to information about the ACCA Qualification that helps when you’re resourcing your finance function. It also acts as a source of information for developing job descriptions or performance development plans.
  • Transferability – by showing real-life scenarios of career pathways and progression routes, the competency framework can guide your trainees at key points in their career, helping transferability across roles in your organisation.
  • Faster progress to membership – because the framework links job roles to performance objectives and performance objectives to exams, you can use it to help your trainees complete their work experience more effectively and progress to membership more quickly.
