All of the Professional Bodies included within the Level 7 Standard have been incorporated by Royal Charter and are Chartered Bodies. They have an obligation to maintain standards in the public interest and as such they are subject to significant oversight and independent scrutiny.

Students can also study for the ACA CTA Joint Programme as part of the Level 7 apprenticeship. Click here for more information.
