Adding employment details
You'll record details about your employer and your role. The tool will calculate how many months experience you have gained in your role based on the employment dates, amount of hours worked per week and the relevance of your role.
You can also add details of previous relevant roles - even if they were before you became an ACCA student. Previous experience needs to be signed off by the person who supervised you in that role.
It's best to record your progress as you go along, adding new roles if you change jobs and getting you’re time signed off if you are leaving a role.
Remember it's only the time you are working that can count towards your PER - so if you are taking an extended break from work but will be returning at some point in the future you should add an end date to you role when you finish and can add a new role with a new start date when you start working again.
How do I record experience if I'm on career break?
As your PER is based on the time you’re gaining relevant work experience - if you're taking an extended break from work but will be returning at some point in the future (for example maternity leave, long term illness, taking time off to care for a relative or if you are furloughed/off work due to COVID-19) you should add an end date to you role and can add a new role with a new start date when you start working again.
