The mission of the African Professionalisation Programme (API) is to grow the capacity of accountancy professionals in the African public sector for enhanced service delivery. The API achieves this mission through developing online learning programmes and facilitating the adoption and implementation of these programmes across the public sector in Africa.
One of the learning programs is the Accelerated Learning Programme (ALP) which targets Incumbents: senior officials in public financial management (PFM) roles who do not have a professional accountancy background.
The Pan African Federation of Accountants (PAFA) is a partner in the API.
PAFA has been engaged by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) to implement a project funded by Gavi – The Vaccine Alliance and The Global Fund to strengthen accountancy and finance capacity in the public sector, particularly the health sector, in Burkina Faso. The API ALP will be used for this purpose. The API ALP is available only in English. It will be translated into French and contextualised for this purpose.
