ACCA recognises that mentoring can help facilitate career success for up-coming future accountants. It has now embarked on its ‘Take the Challenge’ campaign, which is designed to challenge youngsters between ages 13 and 16 years, especially those interested in Finance or Accountancy.
ACCA is providing this opportunity for students to not only get a head start into the qualification but also to study the foundation of bookkeeping through a six-week course, and to then take the online progress test for free. They are also giving all students a chance to prove that they are the best, win prizes and the title of ACCA Middle East’s Student Financial Champion 2021.
Fazeela Gopalani, Head of ACCA Middle East quoted: The challenge is providing a unique opportunity for students to have an insight into the world of accounting whilst being able to test the qualification as it counts towards their studies for the ACCA qualification which is embedded in many of the university finance courses in the region. It also highlights the importance of financial literacy to an audience that hasn’t had much exposure.
