We are honored to receive the Private College of the Year award and are very grateful to our students, staff, and clients for their continued support and contributions to our success.
What are the PQ Awards?
The PQ Magazine Awards are an annual event that recognises excellence in the accounting profession across the United Kingdom. The awards are considered as one of the most prestigious in the industry and cover a range of categories, including Accountancy Team of the Year, Public Sector College of the Year, and Accountancy Apprentice of the Year. The annual PQ awards are judged by an independent panel of experts. The panel evaluates nominees based on criteria such as innovation, client service, and professional development. Winners are celebrated at an award ceremony that brings together leaders from the accounting profession to honor the accomplishments of their peers.
