Winning the SQA Star Awards: Centre of the Year in the Wider UK 2017 was a surprise and an honour and it gave all of the staff at our National Training Centre in Darlington a massive confidence boost.
This was a platform for us all to work together to make 2018 even better in the knowledge that we are delivering excellent apprenticeships in a great facility. In November 2018 TICA was again nominated as a finalist for the SQA Star Awards: Centre of the Year in the Wider UK 2018 and to our absolute delight we won the award yet again!
Hellen Pemberton, our Curriculum Manager, received the award at a glittering event held at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow. This is the first time any organisation has ever won an award in 2 consecutive years.
