Nicola Mower, ICAEW Training and CPD Manager, shares her top tips on how to update your training file, including what ICAEW is looking for, what you need to record, and how much to write.

The ACA is a professional qualification, not just an academic one, which means that along with exams you must also update the practical work experience, professional development and ethics sections of your training file and have these reviewed by your employer at least every six months throughout your training. But don’t worry, the ACA is a structured programme so you will accumulate practical work experience days and develop your professional development and ethical skills as you progress your training. So you will have lots of updates to add into your file every six months.
