Gareth John (Chief Executive of East Anglia/Yorkshire) said:

“I have never been prouder of the dedicated learning professionals that I am lucky enough to work with than I have been during the challenges of the pandemic. To see the way that every team member across the country has stepped up to minimise the disruption to our learners has been nothing short of inspirational to me. Seeing the breadth of recognition my colleagues at First Intuition have achieved in so many categories of the 2021 PQ Awards is a real testament to the commitment and creativity they have displayed day in, day out over the last 12 months. Well done to all of them!”

Nick Craggs (AAT Distance Learning Director) said:

“To be shortlisted three times, and win one award last year was an amazing achievement, but then this year to be recognised in so many categories is something I wouldn’t have dreamed of! It shows how every single person across the FI network has risen to the challenges of the last year. The hard work and dedication shown by every single person at FI has been inspiring and is a real testament to their passion and commitment to our students. I am delighted to see us being recognised in so many categories!”

Kelley O’Donovan (Chelmsford Director) said: 

“When lockdown happened I knew that I had to do something to help my students. So I started running weekly revisions sessions online for my financial statements class. I then thought – why restrict just to them? With the use of technology, I could be helping the wider AAT community at this difficult time and hence I started offering them to anyone who needed help with financial statements. After only a few weeks I had over 100 students joining live and after telling other colleagues at First Intuition about this, they were inspired to also give up their time to do the same for their subjects. As a result, we have managed to help and support over 5,000 AAT students. We have all faced challenges over the past 12 months but what is important is how you choose to respond to those challenges and make the best out of a bad situation.”

Jon Block (East Anglia S&D Coach) said:

“I am very humbled to have been shortlisted for the 2021 PQ Magazine Mentor/Training Manager of the Year award. I feel incredibly fortunate to work with so many amazing students and colleagues within my role.”

Noah Davis (Chelmsford Student) said:

“I am delighted to have been shortlisted for the PQ Magazine – PQ of the year. Having been a subscriber to the magazine for quite some time, to see my name on the website is a very surreal and humbling moment.”
