Training Curriculum

PwC's Academy offers a varied training programme that includes a mix of technical and business skills sessions. The sessions, which take the form of courses and/or workshops, are delivered mainly by partners and senior staff members of PricewaterhouseCoopers - professionals who are recognised as specialists within their respective fields and who possess strong presentation and communication skills.

Technical sessions include accounting, advisory & consulting, auditing and tax and related matters whilst business skills sessions relate to managerial and other complementary skills required to run a business or organisation successfully. All sessions aim to be as practical and business oriented as possible. By limiting the participants in each session to manageable numbers PwC's Academy gives as much of a personal and participant focused service as possible. This is more conducive towards learning and development and should impact favourably on the participants’ ability to transfer new skills learnt back to their workplace.

The Academy’s philosophy encourages industry-focused and client-specific training and these programmes are run following discussions held with those organisations that show interest in this type of “closed” training for their people. These sessions are exclusive to the organisation requesting them and will follow an in-depth training needs analysis that PwC's Academy carries out together with its clients. This enables the Academy to transform its expertise into dedicated training projects, with clear benefits. Easier adaptation to the organisation’s working environment, addressing specific issues faced by the target audience, being more relevant to the individual client/industry scenario and focusing on the needs of a homogenous group are just some of these benefits. The Academy also offers guidance and assistance to clients in compiling the necessary documentation when applying for any applicable training grants.

The Academy's training sessions qualify for continuous professional education (CPE) hours under the core or professional competencies in accordance with Directive 1- Continued Professional Education as issued by the Accountancy Board in terms of the Accountancy Profession Act (Cap. 281) and of the Accountancy Profession Regulations 1986 (as amended).
