The prestigious awards took place on Monday 25 April at Proud Embankment in London. Importantly, Tim Howes, Amy Forrest, and Gareth John were there to collect the awards!
Tutor of the Year Tim Howes!
Tim has dedicated a lifetime to teaching accountancy students. With 32 years of experience, he is the longest-serving tutor currently at First Intuition Cambridge Ltd. Tim’s dedication and contribution has helped shape the accountancy sector locally and further afield. Most of the business and accounting community in the East of England have been taught by Tim and today many are now his clients. Furthermore, he has shared his expertise and knowledge internationally by teaching thousands of students across the world.
Tim Howes, Client Director for FI Norwich and Ipswich said:
“Winning this PQ award was such a pleasant surprise. I love what we do for our students and clients, it brings me great pride and satisfaction. In the lecture room, I really enjoy the opportunity to engage in a little banter and exuberant enthusiasm at the same time as delivering what for many is perhaps not the most riveting material. But student experience and success is the result of a far wider team effort and this award, whilst a lovely recognition of my many years of delivery in the classroom is testament to a team that I am so pleased that I finally joined in 2019, giving me a new lease of youthful buoyancy and motivation.”
Gareth John – Cheif Executive for FI Cambridge said:
“A legend recognised! I couldn’t have been more delighted to see my colleague Tim Howes FCA pick up his PQ Award for ‘Tutor of the Year’ 2022 last night. I am sure those of you who Tim has taught for professional accountancy qualifications over the last 30 years will agree that this recognition was long overdue. Well done Tim!”
PQ Award – Innovation in Accountancy
First Intuition is committed to creating new ways to attract young adults into the accountancy and finance industry and prides itself on producing free, reliable, and informational resources. First Intuition feels this is more important than ever as many school and college students have missed out on careers information and opportunities due to the pandemic. In response to this, the Accountancy Academy was created to give GCSE and A-Level students the opportunity to find out more about the accountancy and finance industry and the careers available within it. It also gives students interested in pursuing a career in this field the space to learn more, ask questions, and talk to potential employers.
Amy Forrest, Managing Director for Cambridge FI said:
“Our Accounting Academies have been a fantastic way for people interested in starting a career in accounting to learn more. People from across First Intuition came together to run and provide these excellent academies and I am incredibly proud that this team effort has been recognised with this PQ award”
First Intuition shares and promotes the academies with schools, colleges, and careers advisors. To date, the programme has been distributed across 70+ schools and have had 1,000+ registrations.
