Integrated Qualification for Auditors

This ground breaking integrated qualification combines the unrivalled expertise of both institutes to meet the audit needs of both the public and corporate sectors.

The audit landscape is evolving:

  • Radical changes have been made to public sector audit with the abolition of the Audit Commission and the introduction of formally regulated public sector audit.
  • Increasing amounts of public money spent on public services is being commissioned through private sector contracts.
  • A growing number of corporate bodies bidding for and delivering public services.

Given these changes, the Integrated Qualification for Auditors will offer significant career development to any aspiring audit professional by:

  • Gaining registered audit status to practice across every sector of the UK economy.
  • Affording greater portability between public and corporate sectors.
  • Owning a single sought after qualification for firms and national audit bodies.

Professionals gaining this landmark qualification will benefit from dual designation of Chartered Public Finance Accountant (CPFA) and Chartered Accountant (CA) as well as membership to the Institute of Chartered Accountants Scotland (ICAS).
