  • Accounting education (old) Image

29 Jan 2009

IFAC's International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) has invited comments on proposed revisions to the Framework for International Education Standards, which sets out the concepts that underlie the IAESB's International Education Standards (IESs).

The proposed framework consists of two parts:
  • Part One explains the educational concepts of competence, initial professional development, continuing professional development, and measurement of the effectiveness of learning and development, which will be used by the IAESB when developing the IESs; and
  • Part Two describes the nature of the IESs as well as the related IAESB pronouncements and IFAC member body obligations.
The framework is targeted primarily to IFAC member bodies that have direct or indirect responsibility for the learning and development of their members and students. It is, however, also relevant to a wide range of stakeholders, including accounting faculties at universities, employers of professional accountants, professional accountants, and prospective professional accountants. Comments are due 30 April 2009. During the comment period, you can download the proposal on IFAC's Exposure Draft Page.
