Awards and Accreditation


“First of all we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone from the bottom of our heart.  We’d like to thank our students who without their drive and determination to succeed and be the best we’d be nothing.  Our staff who are beautiful and continually make sure they give our students a fun enjoyable teaching experience and finally we would like to thank our wonderful alumni.”

Ok so we’ve never actually stood up and given that acceptance speech in the hope we rival Gwyneth Paltrow’s at the Oscars in 1999 but we feel proud of our awards and achievements over the years.  To look over our virtual trophy cabinet just follow the links below.


We are proud to provide our students with opportunities to gain the best education possible and where appropriate make sure our courses meet the requirements of industry as represented by the various professional bodies.  Our accredited courses are assessed against defined and accepted standard criteria as set out by professional bodies and we are periodically visited by representatives of these professional bodies to ensure we continue to adhere to their criteria.
