The IAESB's International Education Standards address the principles for professional accountants' learning and development and play an important global role in developing professional competence, improving the quality of professional accountancy education, and building effective professional accountancy organizations.
The IAESB also develops implementation support materials, including videos, webcasts and presentations, and guidance documents. These resources support accounting education and provide assistance to academics, training providers, professional accounting organizations and employers.
Feedback from all stakeholders is welcome, especially on existing support materials, implementation challenges and suggestions for needed resources. To submit feedback, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
