THE ASSOCIATION of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) has launched two new e-learning modules for students and affiliates. The accountants’ body said the courses will help to give them the essential ‘people skills’, as well as the practical expertise needed to work in the financial world.

The optional modulesare open to both students and affiliates, designed to help them develop skills in communications, team working and relationship building. ACCA also says the modules will help students in developing the skills they will need to demonstrate in the workplace after the completion of their practical experience requirements (PER).

The two modules are: Communicating Effectively and Working Relationships.

Alan Hatfield, ACCA director of learning, said: “We believe the ACCA Qualification prepares students to become complete finance professionals, with the skills required to meet the needs of employers. Through these developments, we continue to strengthen the competencies possessed by our members to meet the constantly changing needs of business today.”
