George Town, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (17 March 2023) – A brand new series of free webinars are now available for the ACCA student population, being provided to not just students and job seekers in the Cayman Islands but to the wider Caribbean region.

The webinar series is geared at ensuring students are workforce-ready, covering soft skills in the workplace and hot topics relating to developing and sustaining a successful, long-term career in the accounting field.
“With 190 ACCA students in the Cayman Islands, most of whom are studying on their own, we hope to offer relevant content to prepare them for a bright future within the profession. We have provided them with an on-island testing centre and it’s time to take the next step in our journey of support to our students. We continue to see a growing demand for accounting professionals not just in the region but across the globe, and we firmly believe the region has a lot to offer when it comes to accounting talent” said Candice Czeremuszkin, Chair, Cayman Islands Local Chapter of ACCA members
