CAREER  GUIDANCE  PROGRAMME FOR PARENTS AND STUDENTS

On 17th August 2019, A Career Guidance Programme for Parents and the Students of the Commerce Group was conducted by Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and School of Excellence (SOE) in our School.

Mr. Punith Kumar, CEO and Ms. Royston, Regional Manager of ACCA group gave a brief introduction about ACCA and SOE in their Introductory Address.

They facilitated the session for both the Parents and Students  and stressed on the advantages of pursuing higher education in ACCA, as it is globally recognized unlike the Chartered Accountancy (CA) Courses.

They stressed on the three levels of the Competitive Exams and said Level 1 has 3 papers consisting of MCQ, Level 2 with  6 papers with Assessment on Applied Skill and Level 3 has 4 papers in Strategic Profession with a Project submission at the end of Level 3.

They said the Speciality of this Certificate Course is that Examinees get a Diploma Certificate in Accountancy after Level 1, a  B.Sc. Degree from Oxford Brooklyn University after Level 2 and a Post Graduate Degree (M.Sc.) from University of London after Level 3.

The facilitator also focused on the merits of ACCA as in comparison to the CA.  He listed the following to prove that an ACCA outweighs the CA which included, Passport to 180 Countries, Work License not only in Financial Sector but also in Manufacturing and Service Sector, Privilege of appearing in single paper is comparison to writing all the papers in case of a repeated attempt and an interning period that comes with a 'Work Experience Certificate'.
