Supporting the development of accountants & finance professionals in its beneficiary countries is one of the main objectives of PULSAR Education Community of Practice (EduCop). Between October 2019 and early 2020, an IPSAS Training of Trainers (ToT) Program for the core group of trainers from PULSAR participating countries was completed and formed the basis for further scaling up IPSAS training in beneficiary countries. During the current SIT we will discuss the materials which were obtained during the IPSAS ToT and we will focus on the good examples of Public Sector Accounting Education Programs and materials available on-the-ground and on-line.
In the first part of the event we will present an overview of the ACCA IPSAS Certification curriculum (CertIPSAS) and an example of the Course on Accounting in Public Sector being delivered in the Kyiv National University of Economics named after Vadym Hetman (Ukraine). This session will be followed by a presentation of the European Public Sector Accounting online course, developed within DiEPSAm Project by the University of Rostock. The course and examination is available online and is free of charge http://offene.uni-rostock.de/online-course-european-public-sector-accounting/. The third part of the event will feature a presentation of an on-line learning tool “IPSAS in the Box” which was developed by PwC and could be an interesting option for our beneficiary countries.
The key objectives of this SIT are: (i) to learn from Program partners on the products and resources available online and relating to accounting education in public sector; (ii) review of examples of curricula implemented by international education service providers and EduCoP members in selected universities; (ii) exchange views on presented products and online resources among the event participants.
The Workshop will start at 8:00 am EST and will last for two hours. It will be delivered in English with simultaneous interpretation to Albanian, Bosnian/ Croatian/Serbian, Russian, and Spanish.
