Commenting on the ACA Professional Level exam results and the Level 4 Accounting Technician apprenticeship end-point assessments for March 2019, Shaun Robertson, ICAEW Director, Education and Qualifications, said: “Each of our students has a role to play in delivering ICAEW’s vision of a world of strong economies. This vision is aided by the number of students globally now studying for the ACA qualification. Once qualified, they will be sought after by employers all over the world, whether in practice or in business.
