As part of the practical experience requirement (PER), you'll need to achieve performance objectives. The performance objectives and exams are closely linked. This means that the knowledge you'll develop through your studies are also relevant to the skills and techniques you'll use in the workplace.
Performance objectives are the benchmarks of effective performance. They describe the types of work activities you'll be involved with as trainee accountants. They also outline the values and attitudes you should demonstrate.
You'll need to achieve nine performance objectives in total:
- all five Essentials objectives, and
- any four from 17 Technical objectives.
You'll demonstrate your achievement of the performance objectives by performing activities in the workplace. You'll then write a statement to provide examples of your experience which demonstrates to your practical experience supervisor that you have to achieved the objectives.
