QA Centre of Excellence Award

QA Apprenticeships have been presented with an Outstanding Centre of Excellence Award for delivery of IT certifications.  This award is presented by Prodigy Learning to recognise exceptional performance in delivering internationally recognised IT certifications from industry leaders such as Adobe, Autodesk, HP and Microsoft.  

Prodigy Learning awards Centre of Excellence status annually to a small number of centres (academic institutions and private training providers) in the UK & Ireland to mark the delivery of over 250 IT certifications in the year.  This new Outstanding Centre of Excellence Award is to recognise a select group of centres (20 across the UK & Ireland) that reach the highest level of achievement and was awarded for the first time in 2014.

Ben Pike (Director, QA Apprenticeships) said: “It is an honour that QA has been recognised by Prodigy Learning for our commitment to delivering significant numbers of technical qualifications to apprentices. Accolades like this reinforce QA’s status as the biggest and best IT apprenticeships business in the UK, and we look forward to continuing to grow in both the quality and quantity of our training.”

Craig Bewley (Director, Prodigy Learning) commented: “QA’s IT Apprenticeship Programme continues to go from strength to strength. QA are the first and only apprenticeship provider to be recognised with this award for delivering a substantial number of MTA qualifications in 2014. If they continue with the success they’ve had, I have no doubt that they’ll be the number one Certiport Authorised Testing Centre (CATC) by volume in the UK this year!
