A stepping stone to chartered accountancy

The ICAEW Certificate in Finance, Accounting and Business, also known as ICAEW CFAB, covers the first six modules of the ACA qualification and provides a solid foundation in key finance and business skills. It is also a stepping stone to the ICAEW Business and Finance Professional (BFP) designation.

There are no academic entry requirements – it is open to all including school leavers, undergraduates, mature students and career changers.

Chrissie Bacon, Trainee Accountant at A J Bennewith & Co shares why she chose ICAEW CFAB as a way to chartered accountancy and the ACA.

97% of students would recommend it to others. Here’s why:

  1. Increases their business credibility and the variety  of roles they can apply for.
  2. It’s a stand-alone qualification so helps students to understand if a career in chartered accountancy is right for them.
  3. To progress onto the ACA and become an ICAEW Chartered Accountant.
  4. When applying for ACA training vacancies, having ICAEW CFAB already on their CV can help give them the edge in a competitive job market.
  5. Helps to show to potential employers that they are self-motivated, ambitious and already have some of the business skills employers look for.
  6. It is a stepping stone to the ICAEW Business and Finance Professional (BFP) designation, providing them with professional recognition from a membership organisation as they develop their career.
