CIPP achieves gold at professional awards

15 December 2016

The Chartered Institute of Payroll Professionals (CIPP) has achieved gold at the IAB and IAAP awards which took place at the House of Commons on Thursday 8 December, picking up a total of four awards.

The awards recognise education providers, as well as payroll professionals and book-keepers who have made an outstanding contribution to the industry over the last 12 months.  The CIPP was awarded a gold centre award based on the success rates of those studying with the CIPP to complete IAB accredited qualifications. Speaking about the award, Jason Clark, operations manager for the professional careers academy commented: “The CIPP is absolutely delighted with the achievement of the gold centre award 2016.  The team are all committed to excellent education delivery and high quality standards and achieving this award shows that we are delivering just that, making all the hard work worth it.”

Malcolm Trotter, chief executive of the IAB, said: “The CIPP in particular encompasses the exceptional qualities and skills we expect of our qualification centres.  Its Gold Centre status symbolises excellence within the educational sector and is well deserved”.

In addition the CIPP had successes through two of our payroll apprentices, Lauren Coles and Luke Concannon who were both awarded the apprentice of the year award; and through CIPP board director, Karen Thomson MSc FCIPPdip who was awarded the payroll professional of the year.

The awards took place at the House of Commons on Thursday 8 December 2016 and were presented by IAB patron Lord Dykes and Jila, Vice Chair of the IAB council.
