City & Guilds, Winner of the End-Point Assessment Organisation of the Year award 2021

On Thursday 11 November, City & Guilds were delighted to receive the EPAO of the Year Award at the Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB) ceremony.

15 November 2021

The FAB Awards recognise the contributions made by awarding organisations and their employees to education and skills in the UK over the past year.

Now in it's 6th year, the FAB 2021 Awards dinner was held at the end of the first day of the FAB Conference, on 11 November at the Marriott Hotel in Leicester.

The Awards were independently judged by Rt Hon Anne Milton, Stella Mbubaegbu CBE, Executive Member of the Black FE Leadership Group and Larissa Kennedy, President of National Union of Students.



We were incredibly impressed at how well Awarding Organisations have overcome the significant challenges they faced during the pandemic. This has only been possible due to the hard work and dedication of so many staff. What shone through all the entries is the commitment to learners and to the sector as a whole. It was privilege and inspiration for us to be asked to judge the entries and although not everyone is a winner, they are all worthy of special mention.

We were delighted to receive the award and thank you to the Federation of Awarding Bodies for a fantastic evening to bring the sector together. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone at City & Guilds whose hard work and dedication made this achievement possible.

–Rt Hon Anne Milton


This year we received and abundance of excellent nominations for the FAB Awards, all of which were of a very high standard and demonstrated the commitment of our members to learners and the sector. I am immensely proud of how our industry has risen to the challenges of the last two years and I have heard and seen so many examples of excellence demonstrated by individuals and teams pulling together to support one another as well as centres, employers and of course learners.

–Tom Bewick, FAB Chief Executive
