It is important that you read and understand the training agreement before signing it, as it is a formal agreement. It is specific to your ACA training and is not the same as an employment contract. The agreement describes the support you receive from your employer and what is expected of you in return for your training. Students who terminate their training contract to continue their studies through flexible means must give written authorisation to the Irish accountants of their initial training company. The changes should normally be communicated to us by your employer, but it is your responsibility to discuss them with them to ensure that we are informed of changes to your training contract. If in doubt, talk to your qualified training professional (QPRT). Students who have a training contract in an approved training company must obtain written permission from their current employer to transfer the balance of the employment contract to an alternative training company before applying or interviewing another employer. This written authorization should be requested by any interviewee. You can control the length of your students` approved training. This period must be at least two years (if any, as above) or a maximum of five years (unless the student is trained in a strategic degree or other program offered in partnership with an ICAEW learning partner).

The training agreement is a formally signed document between your organization and each of your students. It relates exclusively to the ACA. Professional development is an essential part of the ACA`s training. It prepares you to successfully manage a variety of situations that you will encounter throughout your career. The competency framework consists of seven key areas, each comprising seven or eight steps, that represent some capacity to be a successful entrepreneur. Ethics and Professional Skepticism The training agreement has been updated to ensure that it is consistent with the state`s more user-friendly and principled learning rules, reflecting the current approaches of many of our licensed employers. The updated document is intended for certified training employers and certified training managers. The range of employers available ranges from large audit firms and large companies to government offices, smaller start-ups and local businesses, so you`re forced to find a training position that`s right for you. It is important to keep us informed of changes to your training agreement.

This includes: If you launch an ACA training contract, your employer will accompany you on the modules that are suitable for you. If you start the ACA independently, you should consider your future ambitions when selecting the modules you want to sit down with.
