IES 8 for Partners
International Education Standard (IES) 8 – Professional Competence for Engagement Partners – is a standard which is always on the agenda for ICAEW and ACCA inspectors. Responsible Individuals (RIs) are required to evidence competence in a number of areas on an ongoing basis. The standard centres around a set of competencies that extend well beyond being technically up to date and encompass the broader skillset needed to be an effective RI
This session will explore the practical measures RIs and Firms need to take to demonstrate compliance with IES 8, what the relevant skills and competencies entail and also the impact the standard has had on the process of becoming an RI.
Particular emphasis will be placed on interpersonal and communication and personal and organisational competency areas and will provide useful CPD in these areas.
