Overview

As part of the continuing innovations to the ACCA Qualification, the online Ethics and Professional Skills module was created in collaboration with employers, and embeds the highest standards of professional and ethical behaviours.   

Our Ethics and trust in a digital age research clearly evidences the need for ethical behaviour into the future – finance professionals should continue to develop their ethical behaviour throughout their career. We recognise this, so are providing free access to the module for our members. 

What's included in the module?

The module covers a range of themes such as innovation and scepticism, leadership and team working, and commercial awareness. The course is made up of six modules; each module includes videos, interactive assets, case studies and quizzes. 

The course includes an assessment with multiple choice questions, which you will need to pass to claim your completion certificate.

2021 changes to EPSM

From 1 April 2021, a new peer assessment component will be included within Unit 8 of the module. For more information on how this will work, please visit our Peer Assessment information page.

Claiming CPD

Members can claim CPD when completing the EPSM. It can take up to 15 hours to complete the module, but members are expected to take significantly less time than this. CPD units (hours) should be claimed for the amount of time it takes to complete the module.
