Hi Ed
Handy hint - set your profile to allow 'PM' - private messaging so that people can send any messages direct to you but will not know your email address (avoids the whole spam thing, but check your spam box for any that may start to come through).

Another suggestion as we do not have many ACCA qualified peeps on here (some yes, but not in great numbers) - how about posting on Accounting Web too, if you havent already.

Sounds very much like you do! So are you back to these lovely shores or going elsewhere in this world?

Would like to visit China, my brother lived there for a while - some of the scenery looks absolutely stunning and completely out of this world (almost)

Yes, the plan is to come back to Britain and go into industry.

China's an amazing place, and I've only seen a tiny part of it. It's a shame it's been a bit too grey and smoggy recently, and getting worse every year. If they could get the air pollution sorted, it would be wonderful, but that's no easy fix.

I've had fun the last few years, but missing family, and planning to have a child, the long term plan is (hopefully) to settle down in the UK.

Japan's also great. If I were to recommend a holiday destination, I'd slightly favour Japan over China. It's cleaner, a bit more colourful, and the tourist sights are much less crowded.

That said, they're very different countries so it's not a fair comparison. Also, my wife is Chinese, and she's brilliant, so it was definitely worth the trip for me!

Hi, I am a fully qualified CIMA member with 5 years post qualification experience. Due to change of circumstance I am interested in teaching ACCA in China. Preferably in a different city however Chengdu will be on my list too. Not sure if this thread is still active so want to try my luck. I could not find anywhere to PM the poster. kind Regards

Poster has not been on since Dec 2016, but might be back if they get email notifications for their posts, besides I suspect he has already left China fromn the words in his post.

You would need ACCA qualification to teach it.

There is a link for the company, which has contacts on it - try that.
