The Institute of Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (ICPAU) has published the inaugural Integration of Knowledge (Paper 18) text. The text was published in January 2020. Previously, there were only study texts for Papers 1-17 of the Certified Public Accountants of Uganda (CPA-U) course.
Mr. John Bosco Ntangaare, the Director – Education at ICPAU hailed the development, as a remarkable achievement in the CPA-U examinations programme. “We now have a harmonised way of providing tuition to the students,” he said.
The new text focusses on the soft skills required for approaching particular scenarios. These include: reading skills, business writing skills, case study skills, business awareness, how to approach ethical scenarios, and a guide to answering case studies.
“The new Integration of Knowledge material is a very good resource that will ensure standardised examinations and standardised teaching, and the quality of accountants we produce will be much better,” Mr. Ntangaare remarked.
Integration of Knowledge is the final paper of the CPA-U course. The text was developed by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS) with support from the International Federation of Accountants IFAC)/Department for International Development (DFID) capacity building project, and continuous input and review by ICPAU.
