What does ACCA do in this market?
ACCA undertakes a range of activity within the schools market, from placing adverts within relevant publications to running school business games. Our presence encourages students to consider accountancy as a potential career route and promotes the ACCA brand. ACCA member and employer support is fundamental in spreading the ACCA message.
Many ACCA members and employers already engage in the schools market, such as by giving a presentation, offering a work experience placement or attending a school careers fair. However, research demonstrates a demand for more accountancy work experience placements and involvement with work-related learning activities to support students learning.
An Accountancy Resources for Schools pack has been designed to assist ACCA members and Approved Employers when discussing a career in accountancy with students. This resource can be used with individual students or entire classes and is available free of charge. Please request a copy.
