On 4th February, the MIA together with ACCA, through their joint ACCA examination scheme, hosted their first event for all local ACCA Approved Learning Providers (ALPs) and their respective tutors.  The event consisted of a whole day workshop discussing several topics related to the ACCA qualification, including the progression of Maltese students and issues associated with Computer Based Exams.

During the discussion, the MIA’s President, Mr Fabio Axisa highlighted the fact that the Institute was there to work with and support all ALPs in their respective roles.  It was emphasised that maintaining and enhancing the quality of the profession is critical for the Institute and that it will continue taking the necessary measures to ensure that this is done.  ALPs had the opportunity to share their opinions on how MIA and ACCA can better support them moving forward. Several valid contributions were made by the participants present.
Following the termination of the ALP event, some learning providers stayed on for the evening event for MIA-ACCA Joint Scheme Students. ACCA representatives: John Cunningham, ACCA Regional Head of Education, Europe and Americas and Dorothy Woods, ACCA Qualification Change Lead, Europe and Americas led a short session providing hints and tips related to examinations.

MIA CEO and technical representatives then opened a discussion whereby the ACCA students present were given the opportunity to share their perspectives on how MIA and ACCA can better support them.
Institute CEO, Maria Cauchi Delia remarked that “through the MIA-ACCA Joint Scheme, the MIA supports students, tutors and ALPs. We were delighted by the positive response to the event and we now look forward to act on the constructive feedback we have received.”

John Cunningham commented that “the job market for professional accountants in Malta is strong, with great opportunities for bright and capable candidates. Events like these between MIA and ACCA are crucial in helping tutors and students to be well trained for the successful careers in Accounting that the Maltese economy needs.”
ACCA students were subsequently invited for networking drinks with MIA and ACCA representatives and learning providers.
