With effect from 1 January 2019, all SAICA trainees with a contract end date after 31 March 2019 will be required to attend a compulsory ethics training course, of between 6 and 8 hours, at least once during their training contract term.
SAICA has prescribed that certain aspects relating to ethics need to be understood and it is important to recognise that these requirements extend far further than simply working through the Code of Professional Conduct with trainees. This course will run independently of the compulsory induction programme that SAICA already prescribes and will focus on the bigger picture of ethics.
NSOA will be developing a standalone 1 day course to address this requirement which will be available from 1 January 2019 at the latest. The Ethics course will form part of our public offering of training courses but can also be delivered on an “in-house” basis should training offices prefer this.
The course will cover the following SAICA-prescribed content:
It will feature a full set of notes and will incorporate a number of practical case studies and / or role-plays to make the learning as practical and relevant as possible.
NSOA Cape Town is thrilled to announce our provisional 2017 CTA results for students registered on the Deluxe support programme.
28 of the 70 CTA 2 students enrolled on the programme were succesful, making it a 40% pass rate before any supplementary exam results. A further 16 students have qualified to write the supplementary exams in January 2018, giving the programme a maximum pass rate of 63% should all the supplementary students pass.
Congratulations to the “class of 2017” for another brilliant result.
