WHAT IS MY STATUS IF I HAVE PASSED ALL THE ACCA QUALIFICATION EXAMS BUT HAVE NOT YET COMPLETED MY PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE REQUIREMENT (PER)?
If you have not completed the PER you cannot become a member of ACCA, are not yet qualified as a professional accountant and cannot enjoy the benefits associated with this status. To become a member of ACCA and qualify as a professional accountant, you must pass all the exams, successfully complete the professional ethics module and complete the PER.
In order to perform effectively as an ACCA-qualified accountant and to help you meet future career challenges, you need to develop your skills in the workplace. The PER helps you to:
- Apply the knowledge and techniques gained through your studies in practice
- Observe and be involved in real-life work situations that help you to develop the skills, attitudes and behaviours that a qualified accountant needs
- Develop your judgement, encouraging you to reflect on the quality of your work and how you may improve your work performance in the future.
Employers expect ACCA members to show high levels of knowledge and ability in the workplace and to behave ethically. PER enables you to confirm your effective and sustained high-quality workplace performance, making you a more valuable employee.
