Why Become a Chartered Accountant with Advanced Diploma Retraining?

While an advanced diploma isn’t a mandatory requirement for practicing accountants, an AdvDip(CPD) qualification is a fantastic next step for your career, and many accountants choose this route when they want to develop their skills.

So why become a chartered accountant? There are many benefits to getting certified. Here are just a handful of reasons to consider retraining:

1. Boost your employability

Working towards your Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) certification is a great way to enhance your CV and boost your appeal to potential employers. Our AdvDip(CPD) ACCA Strategic Professional Level course will make you ACCA exam qualified, allowing you to apply for membership.

2. Improve your earning power

The average salary of a chartered accountant in the UK is £84,500, with an average yearly bonus of £17,300.

3. Get hired by top companies

Chartered accountants have access to some of the best jobs in the industry, including positions in leading global companies. No other career offers the mobility that a chartered accountant qualification does, and many accountants move into important business advisory or leadership roles.

4. Outstanding learning support

Our ACCA Strategic Professional Level programme provides up to 10 hours’ specialist tuition per week, giving students outstanding support, structure and guidance as they work on their professional development.

5. Work all over the world

Our advanced diploma programme is great for accountants looking to build a global career. The ACCA is one of the world’s most distinguished accountancy bodies, with members and students located in more than 170 countries. This opens up endless opportunities for work-based travel or expat employment contracts.
