    Abstract

    Around the world accounting practitioners and educators have been working
    together to determine the objectives, content and delivery of future accounting
    programmes. This project, focusing on Malaysian Polytechnics' Diploma in
    Accounting programme, proposes an alternative approach to accounting education
    that meets the current and future needs of Malaysia. Selected literature was
    reviewed to investigate and evaluate Competence-based Education and Training
    (CBET). The review considered the characteristics and implications of CBET
    initiatives, and criticism of earlier and present CBET models. To determine the
    appropriateness of CBET in a Malaysian context a questionnaire survey and
    interviews were conducted. Past, present and future performance of graduates of
    Diploma in Accounting programme were the subject of interviews with employers,
    academic heads of commerce departments as well as an assistant director of
    curriculum. The needs and expectations of accounting support staff were
    established. The desired competences of accounting support staff and the actual
    competences of accounting support staff as perceived by a variety of employers were
    identified. Results indicated areas of the programme that need improvement. The
    project proposes a CBET approach as an alternative to the present traditional
    programme.
