Singapore Chartered Accountant Qualification (SCAQ) Academy was launched by ISCA Academy, in partnership with the London School of Business and Finance (LSBF), one of SCAQ’s Registered Learning Organisations (RLO).


In addition to ISCA’s recent collaboration with Indonesia and the Philippines to support the accountancy profession in these countries, this partnership will make a mark on the global stage and support aspiring Chartered Accountants worldwide. 


Designed to support the evolving needs of SCAQ candidates, the SCAQ Academy will run classes in a hybrid format. This hybrid approach allows candidates with demanding schedules to dial in to classes from the convenience of their homes or workplaces, ensuring unparalleled accessibility and flexibility. Conversely, candidates who are more inclined towards interactive learning experiences can opt for in-person classes to have face-to-face interactions with tutors and build camaraderie with their classmates.


“We envisage the launch of the SCAQ Academy and SCAQ Centre meeting the needs of our candidates and providing them with the flexibility and support that they require for optimal learning. It is vital that we continually enhance our professional development and learning support system to prepare the next generation of accountants for the workforce.”


ISCA President Mr Teo Ser Luck 


“This strategic alliance with ISCA signifies LSBF's continued commitment to delivering professional accountancy qualification in Singapore. By teaming up with ISCA, the national accountancy body, we aspire to nurture the next generation of Chartered Accountants with the skills and expertise to lead in this new global business environment. With this collaboration, we expect over a thousand learners to have access to LSBF's professional industry experienced faculty and with ISCA’s valuable resources, ensuring a comprehensive and impactful learning experience.”


Mr Rathakrishnan Govind, CEO, LSBF Global
