New accounting technician framework identifies necessary skills

Feb 25, 2019
Accounting technicians play an important role in many jurisdictions and an accounting technician qualification is frequently a pathway into the accountancy profession. IFAC recently shared a framework for professional accountancy organisations that will support a competent, skilled and future-ready accounting technician workforce.

"Prepared by the AAT, and based on the association's competency framework, An Illustrative Competency Framework for Accounting Technicians is a conversation starter," explained Joseph Bryson, Head of Quality & Development at IFAC. "IFAC hopes that every professional accountancy organisation with an interest in the accounting technician qualification shares their experiences and helps to grow this important segment of the global accountancy ecosystem."

The Framework's illustrative example is a resource for professional accountancy organisations creating an Accounting Technician designation as an additional pathway into the accountancy profession. Those interested in sharing their experience and knowledge should email their articles and/or resources marked "IFAC AAT Framework Discussion".
