Professional Services: CCP for Accounting Professionals
Reskill your competencies to take on new jobs
Accurate as of 30 Mar 2024
What is it?

The Accountancy sector is a key to Singapore’s position as a global business hub and comprises of two segments: In-house Finance & Accounting functions and  Accounting Practices. According to the Jobs Transformation Maps (JTMs), demand for accounting professionals in both segments will continue to grow, to support the rising demand for accounting services as well as business growth and expansion.

In collaboration with the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, the Career Conversion Programme (CCP) for Accounting Professionals* is aimed at equipping mid-career individuals with the necessary skillsets to take on accounting job roles in either In-House F&A Functions or Accounting Practices, with specialisation in one of the following functional tracks:

  • Financial Accounting
  • Management Accounting
  • Assurance
  • Tax
  • Corporate Secretarial

Mid-career individuals hired and placed under the CCP will undergo a 9-month training programme by the hiring employers. The training will be On-the-Job Training-centric, covering core Technical Skills and Competencies (TSCs). The specialisation / functional track will depend on the hiring employers and the job vacancies.

(*The CCP also supports employers in job redesign and reskilling their in-service Accounting Professionals with TSCs. Interested employers may refer to the contact details and contact our Programme Partner for more information.)
