Learning Pool partners with ICAEW to offer Ethics Learning Program to future finance professionals

Learning Pool is delighted to have secured a contract to deliver an Ethics Learning Program (ELP) to ICAEW students training to become chartered accountants.


Learning Pool will create a multimedia learning program for the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW) which will cover an assortment of topics, including ethics principles in technology, cybersecurity, and social media. The elearning will comprise animations, videos and extracts from films and will be launched to students in October 2020. 

ICAEW is a professional membership organization that promotes, develops, and supports chartered accountants and students across the world, in all sectors of the economy. As of 2019, it has over 181,000 members and students in 148 countries.

One of the Institute’s aims is to ensure chartered accountants have the skills and knowledge to help build sustainable, accountable and fair economies. ICAEW’s students are required to complete the online Ethics Learning Program (ELP) as part of the ACA qualification. 


Shaun Robertson, Director, Education and Qualifications at ICAEW commented:

Strong ethics are essential for chartered accountants to maintain trust in business and in financial reporting. We expect our students and members to demonstrate the highest professional standards and consider the public interest when they make decisions. Learning Pool’s tools will give our students the learning framework they need to be ethical professionals.


For its Ethics Learning Program, ICAEW sought a supplier who could develop bespoke content as well as offer a platform that it could be hosted on. Learning Pool was chosen because of its award-winning experience in content development.


Paul McElavney, CEO of Learning Pool also said: 

For over a decade, Learning Pool has helped government and financial institutions deliver ongoing performance improvements through learning. We’re thrilled to be able to help the ICAEW in its mission to provide the skills and knowledge needed by finance professionals.
