We define a secondment as work performed outside your training office organisation. Secondments can help you to broaden your work experience and skills set.
If you are undertaking work on secondment you are advised to:
If your six-monthly review is due whilst you are on secondment your review may either take place at the organisation to which you are being seconded, or you may return to your training organisation. In the case of the former you must discuss professional development progress with your qualified person responsible for training (QPRT) or counsellor as soon as you return from secondment.
We aim to ensure that you receive the best possible training support in a consistent and continuous manner throughout your ACA training. Therefore, there is a limit on the amount of time you may spend on secondment as follows:
The permitted length of a secondment depends on whether the organisation to which you are seconded is an ICAEW authorised training employer. These limits may only be exceeded by applying in advance to student support team on +44 (0)1908 248250.
Please note that you may only count audit experience for Audit Qualification purposes if:
A secondment may affect your eligibility for the Audit Qualification.
Training may be undertaken on a part-time basis at our discretion and is subject to an appropriate extension to the length of your training agreement.
If you are considering moving to part-time work in the first instance, you should contact your QPRT or your counsellor to discuss it. If you need further information on this please contact the student registration team on +44(0)1908 248 250 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
