ICB have an extensive network of branch meetings, each one is run by an ICB member and open to all students and members. Attendance of these allows you to share experiences with your peers. Ideal Schools are proud to sponsor a number of these and attend those local to us on a regular basis.
ICB also hold an annual 'Bookkeepers Summit', the largest of its kind, where they bring together leaders within this industry to keep you informed of legislation and developments. There are many speakers, but areas covered include: software companies, pension regulators, HMRC, and many, many more.

Part of their commitment is to ensure their membership practises to the highest standard, they encourage continued CPD with a guidance of 30 hrs per year (structured & unstructured). Our extensive course range, allied with annual payroll & tax updates, ensures we are well placed to keep your skills relevant.
