SYNOPSIS

The Accountancy Future Leaders Programme is a six-month programme developed by the Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) in partnership with the Singapore Accountancy Commission (SAC).

In this age of digitalisation, global interdependence and complexity, professional services firms face diverse opportunities and challenges. The leadership of a public accounting firm is one of the most important drivers to raise the quality of the firm's work and seize opportunities in this competitive and disruptive market.

The Accountancy Future Leaders Programme ("AFL Programme") provides a structured and formalised professional development pathway aimed at developing selected individuals of accounting firms, in particular the Small and Medium Practices (SMPs), in leadership capabilities which is essential for succession planning. It also aims to improve the competitiveness of SMPs, provide tactical and practical assistance to enhance the quality of SMP services and showcase best practices.

The programme aims to gear up future Accountancy sector leaders with leadership capabilities, market insights and business growth strategies. The focus areas of the programme includes:

  • Practice Leadership
  • Business Strategy
  • People Strategy
  • Technology Strategy

AFL Programme is primarily targeted at:

  • professional accountants working in accounting firms, in particular SMPs, specifically high potential leaders identified by the managing partner, or
  • middle to senior level officers with a minimum of 10 years of professional experience.

You can make a difference to our next generation.

The Singapore Polytechnic Accountancy students have built various Robotic Process Automation (RPA) robots for audit, accounting, tax and corporate secretarial processes as part of their Final Year Projects. Some of these students, like the Ambassadors of ISCA Cares, are from financially vulnerable families. The students would like to provide these RPA bots for free to support Small and Medium-sized Practices (SMPs) in automating their processes and contribute towards the building of the RPA community in Singapore.

Get the bots and pay it forward. Donate to ISCA Cares when you register for this complimentary session. You can learn how to automate your firm’s timesheet process through deployment of RPA bots at this session and at the same time, create a positive change, by supporting accountancy students in completing their accountancy education with your donation. Let’s help more Singapore youths who aspire to join the accountancy profession, more opportunities to reach their fullest potential.This course aims to equip participants with the skills to easily create useful RPA scripts to automate the audit processes, without coding or programming knowledge. They will learn how to achieve this through using a RPA software. At the end of the course, participants will be able to immediately use the RPA solutions and adopt the use of RPA in their workplace.With many businesses turning to digital technologies and tools, cyber risks have also increased tremendously.

These cyber risks are further amplified if accounting professionals and their staff do not have adequate understanding of the risks and management of the risks.

During this webinar, the speakers will share with you how you can manage the cyber and technology risks to prevent unnecessary reputational and financial losses in the long run

By the end of the course, learners will be able to:

  • Understand what is RPA and how it can automate processes
  • Develop RPA scripts using case examples
  • Identify audit processes suitable for RPA implementation
  • Develop RPA scripts using learner’s selected process (es)
  • Deploy developed RPA solutions immediately at the workplace.
