ICAS and BPP Professional Development partnership
ICAS partners with BPP to allow us to provide a wider choice, more cost-effective and wider reaching professional development offering for CAs and business professionals.
At ICAS we are committed to transforming professional development opportunities for our members.
We've expanded our course offering, to ensure that we continue to meet the changing development needs of our members. All ICAS members throughout the UK and Internationally benefit from access to professional development courses, webinars and online learning run by our training partners BPP Professional Development.
Thanks to this partnership, more than 200 accounting, finance and business face-to-face training courses are available. ICAS members benefit from a 15% discount off the full course prices - for individual course prices please visit our training course section on icas.com.
At ICAS we choose our partners carefully because we want to ensure that our members have access to the best professional development resources available.
BPP's track record in accountancy speaks for itself. Offering more than 200 individual courses, BPP is Europe's largest specialist professional training provider and has over 40 years of experience working with many of the UK's top companies and organisations. Having trained two-thirds of the UK's accountants at some point in their career, BPP know the finance and accountancy industry inside out.
We work with BPP because their courses consistently provide for the needs of our members across the fields of accountancy, tax and financial services. Courses also cover specialist topics such as financial reporting, management accounting and investment management.
