ACCA Compass


Welcome to ACCA's ACCA Compass. It’s no secret that members who take time to review their development needs in advance of selecting learning activities are more likely to put together a development plan that not only improves their performance in their current role but which can also help them move up the career ladder or take a side-ways step into a role of greater interest to them. The purpose of this tool is to allow individual members to undertake a competence self assessment process so that more focused professional development can take place.

The tool is not prescriptive, nor is it exhaustive, it describes up to 23 competencies (depending on the role) which are particularly applicable to various finance roles. Once members have undertaken their original assessment they can then adjust their competency skill levels to reflect their current role and compare this to the recommended levels.
