Centre of Excellence

The International Centre of Excellence Award is given to centres who have demonstrated excellence in a wide range of areas including quality of operations, learner experience and industry engagement. It celebrates the exceptional contribution made by the recipients and the positive impact they have made on City & Guilds’ learners.

Representatives of all centres were invited to attend the Lion Awards ceremony in London on 7 July. The Lion Awards is City & Guilds’ most prestigious awards ceremony, where we celebrate the achievements of our outstanding centres, tutors and learners.
