ICAS, BPP and CIMA partnership - Overview
ICAS is partnering with BPP and CIMA to allow us to provide a wider choice, more cost-effective and wider reaching professional development offering for CAs and business professionals.
New Partnership for UK-Wide courses
At ICAS we are committed to transforming professional development opportunities for our members.
We've recently expanded our course offering in September 2015, to ensure that we continue to meet the changing development needs of our members. All ICAS members throughout the UK benefit from access to professional development courses run by our training partners BPP Professional Development and CIMA Mastercourses.
Thanks to this new partnership, more than 200 accounting, finance and business courses are now available across England and Wales, as well as continuing to be available in Scotland. ICAS members will also get a 10% discount on CIMA Mastercourses in England, the equivalent discount that CIMA members receive.
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 35 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.

Courses can also be tailored to meet your own organisation's needs as either one-off or a series of courses. To discuss your professional development requirements please contact the BPP Corporate Business Team:
We've also chosen to allow our members access to CIMA's extensive range of Mastercourses. CIMA courses are relevant for careers not just in accountancy or finance, but in the wider business world. They are experts in teaching the skills needed for strategic advice, managing risk and making key decisions.
CIMA courses closely align with our objective of creating world-class professionals, as they are designed to give participants a strong understanding of all aspects of business.
