kicks off 2017-18 term
A ceremony and briefing session on
8 April formally marked the end of
the Institute Mentorship Programme’s
second term and the start of the third
term, and was attended by nearly 170
mentors and mentees. The 2017-18
programme gathered momentum with
172 mentor-mentee pairs resulted from
the matching process, compared with
142 last year.
The gathering also provided an
opportunity for both the mentors and
mentees to ref lect on their experience
during the mentoring process.
The objective of the Mentorship
Programme is to offer aspiring
CPAs the opportunity to learn from
experienced members for the purpose
of their career development through
consultation and experience sharing.
A mentor-mentee relationship is built
on mutual respect and trust. The scope
of mentoring includes, among other
things, essential skills of a successful
CPA on professional and ethical
behaviour, problem-solving, decision-
making and self-management.
Quality assurance report
highlights review findings
This month, the Institute published
its quality assurance report for 2016,
summarizing the work of the Quality
Assurance Department in practice
review and professional standards
monitoring in the past year.
The report highlights common
review findings and allows practices
to consider whether they have similar
problems that need attention to improve
their audit and assurance work.
It is the tenth report on the review
work carried out by the department
signalling a key milestone in the
practice review programme, which
was revised in 2007 in light of
international developments and
increasing expectations of regulation
and monitoring of auditors. To mark
the tenth anniversary, the report
also gives a summary of the major
events that have occurred in the past
decade in relation to practice review
Mentors and mentees shared their experiences of the mentoring process during the end-of-term ceremony.
