IFAC's International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) has invited organisations and individuals with an interest in accounting education to comment on its proposed 2010-2012 Strategy and Work Plan.

The IAESB's proposed strategy focuses on projects and activities aimed at developing International Education Standards (IESs), while providing adoption and implementation guidance to interested stakeholders in accounting education.
The IAESB proposes to undertake three high-priority activities, beginning in 2010. These are:
  • Conducting a revision of the IESs, considering results of the IAESB's drafting conventions project and recent developments in the accountancy profession.
  • Developing implementation guidance in areas of measurable implementation of the IESs, competency frameworks, and quality control measures for education providers.
  • Promoting greater awareness among academics, regulators, and others of the IAESB's pronouncements and its role in advancing international debate on emerging issues relating to development and assessment of professional accountants.
The direction of further activities during the period of 2010-2012 will depend on the outputs from these three projects, although the IAESB's proposed work program for 2010-2012 contains a number of potential projects for consideration. Comments are requested by 5 October 2009.
