Strategic Aims

27 Apr 2021

The CIOT Council agreed its three year strategy in November 2019. The below infographic represents our three strategic aims of education, standards and voice. The strategy is supported by a Business Plan against which progress is reported at each Council meeting.  


1. DESIGNING AND DELIVERING EDUCATION AND LEARNING:

AIMS

  • Offering qualifications which meet current and future market needs
  • Facilitating learning for tax practitioners to ensure ongoing continued competence
  • Innovating the way in which our education and learning can be accessed by an increasingly flexible and diverse workforce
  • Ensuring access to qualification as a chartered tax adviser is open to all, regardless of socio-economic background

2. PURSUING EXCELLENCE AND PROMOTING STANDARDS:

AIMS

  • Keeping abreast of the tax and associated welfare systems and seeking to influence the agenda for change where it is relevant and appropriate to our charitable objectives
  • Increasing public understanding of tax matters and pursuing simplification of the tax system
  • Developing an educational and ethical framework of the highest standard which can be embraced by those who share our values

3.REPRESENTING AN ENGAGED AND GROWING MEMBERSHIP:

AIMS

  • We will lead the profession in demonstrating to policymakers, employers and the public the value that chartered tax advisers bring to society by running and supporting successful tax practices and contribute to economic sustainability in the public and private sectors
  • Being the voice of chartered tax advisers and representing their technical expertise
  • Delivering services which add value and reflect best use of member fees
  • Supporting members through their careers as chartered tax advisers, from studying to retirement to volunteering
