CAA PLACEMENT PROGRAMME
To equip our students with basic work-readiness skills and place them to prospective employers
CAA is a leader in training Chartered Accountants in Zimbabwe. The academy started operating in 2011, and introduced the placement programme in 2013.Since then, CAA continued to assist students in securing places for articles within ICAZ recognized training offices. In 2014 CAA itself registered as a training office, and started recruiting students from CTA Full-Time class for articles. From 2014, CAA started organizing firm seminars, whereby equal opportunity is offered to ICAZ training firms to visit and do presentation on their recruitment process to CTA students who will be studying.
From 2015/6 the programme has been extended to ACCA and CTA Part-Time students after studying with CAA.

CAA does not grantee you a job, but facilitates a platform for you to meet the potential employer and it is upon you as a student to impress that employer, or to choose if it is your best fit.
Therefore, students are also advised to apply on their own and not to only rely on CAA’s
CAA does not do the selection process for training offices, but offers equal opportunity to all students. Therefore, training offices are encouraged to communicate with the students on their own once they receive CVs from CAA or students themselves.
