What is the Approved Employer programme?

What does the programme do?

The ACCA Approved Employer Programme recognises employers’ high standards of staff training and development.

We are committed to ensuring our students, affiliates and members have the right skills, ethics and competences to add value and drive businesses around the world forward.

Employer support

Employers play a vital role in ensuring they have access to regular professional development and support.

If your organisation upholds the highest levels of employee support you may be able to become an approved employer. There are many benefits, from aiding talent acquisition, to promoting your business and involvement in our research and insight. Learn more about the benefits.
