Train the Trainers Programme for ACCA
Sunway-TES, a subsidiary of Sunway Education Group, Malaysia, was established in 1994 to provide professional accounting and financial qualifications such as CAT and ACCA Qualification, which are recognized internationally. In recognition of its consistently high results as an ACCA tuition provider, Sunway-TES was awarded the Premier Plus Status by ACCA in 2003, the first-ever award in the world outside of the European Union. This achievement was subsequently improved further when Sunway-TES became one of the first institutions in Malaysia to be awarded the Approved Learning Partner -Platinum Status in 2007.
Sunway-TES is the preferred choice for ACCA qualifications in the Asia Pacific Region. The rationale is presented from the perspective of factors contributing to the success story of Sunway-TES.
The 'Train the Trainers Programme', was conducted by Sunway-TES in Shanghai and Beijing in August 2006, July 2007, October 2009 and November 2010 respectively, with a total of 250 trainers from various institutions in Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Zhejiang, Xiamen, Shenyang, Shandong and Tianjin attended the programme as a result of an invitation from ACCA, Shanghai. The efforts of the trainers were appreciated and the trainees commended the programme as interesting, motivational and relevant. The training effort was a stepping stone to greater involvement with the accountancy profession in China itself.
Collaborative efforts made have resulted in the signing of a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with Hanoi University, Vietnam, in November 2008. The collaboration involves the provision of ACCA qualification in Hanoi University itself. Classes have commenced in March 2009.
