Global Competency Framework

The Institute of Public Accountants (IPA) has developed a Global Competency Framework (GCF) that outlines the essential skills, knowledge, behaviours, and attributes that individuals at various levels or stages in their career should possess to progress into a professional financial role.

The framework provides a structure to assess and develop the performance of individuals in three sets of competencies: Technical, Transdisciplinary and Professional. These have been developed in collaboration with international industry experts, academics and employers, ensuring that the content is aligned with current and emerging trends, and practical workplace requirements.

The GCF works to align today’s necessary skills in a rapidly changing job market with individuals seeking to enhance their knowledge and advance their careers. The GCF will be based to develop flexible options and focused micro credentialing programs that are relevant, practical, and applicable to the latest job roles.
