IFAC's Education Standards Board adopts new strategy

  • Accounting education (old) Image

12 Apr 2010

The International Accounting Education Standards Board (IAESB) has issued its Strategy and Work Plan for 2010-2012, which focuses on enhancing the International Education Standards (IESs) and providing guidance for IES adoption and implementation.

This work will assist IFAC member bodies, regulators, employers, academics, and students by prescribing principles for the learning and development of a professional accountant. The focus of IAESB activities will be on the following:
  • Revising the IESs in consideration of the IAESB's drafting conventions project, which compiled stakeholder feedback on improving the clarity of the standards;
  • Developing implementation guidance for the measurable implementation of the IESs, competency frameworks, and quality control measures for education providers; and
  • 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 the development and assessment of professional accountants.
