Practical Experience Requirement (PER)

Laying the foundations for ACCA Qualification – the future

Being a confident, inspiring and trusted professional comes with experience. Our practical experience requirement lets you put the theory you learn into practise in a supported environment. The practical experience objectives were updated early in 2016 to better reflect real-world work demands so they will remain as they are now.

Recording your career progression – and developing your CV

Experience can be gained from the start of your journey – so there’s no need to wait until your exams are completed before you start recording your practical experience. Remember, relevant experience can be gained before, during or after your exam and ethics components of the ACCA Qualification are completed.

Easy to record. Make your journey to membership quicker and easier

Don’t forget to regularly update your PER record. This will make it quicker and easier for you to progress to membership once you’ve completed your exams and ethics.
