I have been working in the same company now for almost 4 years but during those 4 years I have had 4 different bosses (finance directors) and none of them have stayed at the company for longer than a year. My question is will I need to have 3 of them sign off 1 year of experience each or can one of them just do the whole 3 years? I’m in contact with one of them who left recently and he is willing to sign off my work experience but I just need to know the rules around it first, contacting the other 2 might be more difficult.
“Multiple practical experience supervisors
You may have more than one supervisor – or several different supervisors over a period of time – who are responsible for helping you to achieve different performance objectives.”
I would interpret this to mean that whoever is your supervisor at the time that you complete the objectives is the person who should sign them off.
Also on that page it differentiates between:
– signing off the performance objectives you’ve achieved
– signing off the time in a relevant role you’re claiming towards the 36 months requirement.
I would have thought your current FD could sign to confirm that you have been in a relevant role for 3 years even if they personally have not been your supervisor throughout that time. I do think however that the FD who recently left should be the one to sign off on the POs that you achieved under his supervision.
If you need more guidance that is not answered here https://www.accaglobal.com/uk/en/help/student-faqs-practical-experience-requirements.html or failing that contact ACCA (though the chat at the bottom of the page seems currently to not be available).
Thank you for your help.
You’re very welcome!
