The ACCA Pathway

The primary purpose of the ACCA qualification is to prepare learners to practice as professional accountants within any sector of the economy in South Africa or globally. The structure of the syllabus comprises foundational level, skills and professional levels designed to assist learning and understanding and to ensure that learners develop an appreciation of the development and interdependence of levels and subjects. 

Together, the examination syllabus, ethics module and practical experience requirements focus on the learner's ability to satisfy the technical, managerial, interpersonal and ethical requirements of a professional accountant and require the learner to adopt an analytical and critical approach.
