Scope launches cloud accounting packages for MCAST accountancy students
This Scope sponsored training provides a strong foundation in the multifaceted forms of cloud-based accounting systems, equipping educators with practical skills and knowledge to better nurture the development of tomorrow’s accountancy and finance professionals.
Scope Solutions, in collaboration with the MCAST Institute of Business Management and Commerce (IBMC), is launching a cloud accounting training programme geared towards educators together with licences for Xero platform- online accounting software. This Scope sponsored training provides a strong foundation in the multifaceted forms of cloud-based accounting systems, equipping educators with practical skills and knowledge to better nurture the development of tomorrow’s accountancy and finance professionals.
Recognising the need to bridge academia with ever-evolving industry expectations in the wake of game-changing cloud technology, MCAST approached Scope to design and provide a training programme to IBMC lecturers on the cloud-based accountancy platform, Xero. This programme will enable lecturers to impart the knowledge and competencies accountants must be conversant in to succeed in the digital era.
The cloud has irreversibly transformed accountancy and business management, with many of the world’s leading professionals having already fully embraced the technology. As the technology continues to gain widespread adoption, this evolution needs to be at the top of every young professional’s mind as they work towards accreditation and breaking into the industry.
“We at Scope remain committed to encouraging formal education, lifelong learning and upskilling. This unique training programme being offered to MCAST lecturers draws from our decade-plus expertise in researching, developing, and implementing cutting-edge accounting solutions, which today have been adopted by a long list of local and international clients operating across a wide spectrum of industries. We want to ensure educators are equipped with the capacity to accelerate holistic digital transformation within the profession, from education to practice and beyond.” says Neville Micallef, Managing Partner Scope Solutions.
Scope’s team of cloud specialists has developed a tailor-made programme to expose MCAST lecturers to the advantages, possibilities, and business potential of various cloud-based accounting software, such as Xero, all of which are designed to improve operational efficiency and streamline finance cycles. All in all, the training program will provide MCAST educators with an interdisciplinary set of tools, knowledge, and skills to pass on to students through the college’s accounting and business courses.
“It’s a privilege to have been entrusted with this opportunity to be on the forefront of educating the future accountancy professionals, and all of us at Scope feel a great responsibility to get it right. Just as students deserve the best education that aligns with industry demands, so too do educators deserve access to quality professional development based on the latest digital trends and real-world scenarios. We hope to continue this collaboration with MCAST and explore further possibilities to incorporate cloud-based accounting into the diploma curriculum.” says Brian Ferris, Managing Partner Scope Solutions.
“By continuously working on forging strong relationships with key players and market leaders in the local industry, such as Scope, MCAST students can transition smoothly into the demands and expectations of the business world” says Andrew Galea – Director of IBMC
